The Rock Paper Scissors World Championship, held in Toronto, Canada earlier this month, has made history by setting two new world records.
The first record was for the highest number of participants in a rock paper scissors tournament. A whopping 1,500 people from all over the world came together to compete for the coveted title of world champion. The competition was open to players of all levels, from beginners to experts, allowing anyone to try their luck at this classic game.
The second record was for the largest rock paper scissors tournament ever held. Over the course of two days, participants battled it out in a double-elimination tournament format until only one player remained. The final showdown was filled with suspense, as two expert players went head-to-head in a best-of-five series to determine the ultimate champion.
In the end, it was a player from the United States who took home the title of Rock Paper Scissors World Champion. He beat out hundreds of other players to claim the title and a cash prize of $7,000.
The tournament was not just about winning, however. It was also a chance for players from around the world to connect and bond over their love of rock paper scissors. Participants were encouraged to make new friends and build connections with like-minded people.
The event was organized by the World RPS Society, a group dedicated to promoting the game of rock paper scissors and hosting tournaments around the world. The society hopes to make rock paper scissors a recognized sport, and this year’s championship was an important step towards achieving that goal.
Overall, the Rock Paper Scissors World Championship was a fun-filled event that brought people from all over the world together in the spirit of competition and camaraderie. With two world records under its belt, the tournament has firmly established rock paper scissors as a legitimate and exciting sport. We can’t wait to see what the next championship will bring!
