We all know the hand game rock paper scissors, we have used it instead of flipping a coin or drawing a straw. At the Morikami on Sunday, they were using the game as a challeng. If a player wins 3 consecutive hands a prize awaits being drawn from a sack.
If you recall …
Rock, represented by a clenched fist, breaks scissors
Scissors, represented by two fingers extended and separated, cuts paper
Paper, represented by an open hand, covers rock.
The way I remember it … both players raise one hand in a fist and throw their fist towards each other three times, saying rock- scissor- paper. On the last count the hand is thrown towards the opponent and gesture is changed. I think it’s a tie if you both use the same gesture and you go again.
Is that how you remember it?
