Are you ready for a challenge? Whether you’re looking to impress your friends with your rock-paper-scissors (RPS) skills or just want to add some variety to the classic game, these RPS variations will put your strategy to the test.
Popularized by the TV show The Big Bang Theory, this RPS variation adds two more options to the game. In addition to rock, paper, and scissors, players can choose lizard (represented by a hand gesture resembling a lizard tongue) or Spock (made by holding out the hand with the index and middle fingers spread apart in a V shape).
In this version, lizard beats paper and Spock, paper beats rock and Spock, scissors beats paper and lizard, rock beats lizard and scissors, and Spock beats rock and scissors.
This RPS variation adds two new elements to the game: fire and water. Fire beats paper, scissors, and rock, but loses to water. Water beats fire, but loses to scissors, rock, and paper.
In this version, players have the option to use dynamite instead of rock. Dynamite beats all other options, but can only be used once per game.
In this variation, there is a fourth option called the well. The well beats rock, scissors, and paper, but loses to dynamite.
This variation is a simple twist on the classic game, where players shout “Shoot!” after they both have made their hand gestures. This adds an element of surprise and can throw off your opponent’s strategy.
No matter what RPS variation you choose, the key to winning is to pay attention to your opponent’s moves and anticipate their next move. With these variations, you can test your skills and keep things interesting at your next game night.[ad_2]
