Who cares about the World Series when you have the World Rock, Paper, Scissors Championship.

Click here at Yahoo for complete details. Are you practicing yet for next year's championship tournment?

Oh darn! I missed it..... Of course, RPS is boring when played by only two, they have yet to experience group RPS competitions. Try playing RPS with groups of 6 or more! Now there is some strategy... Jay

[quote] To achieve the lofty title of World RPS Champion, he threw a combination of rock-paper-paper, defeating his opponent's offering of three rocks. [quote]

Who would go with 3 rocks in a row? That's just asking to lose. Man, even I could have walked off with the $5000.00 prize money....

Not exactly that 52, but I like to play War at Niagara Falls.

James, yes the War thing was an odd site to see, but I guess it makes about as much sense as any other card game...Now imagine if they ever introduced "Slap Jack". Posted Image

[quote] Who would go with 3 rocks in a row? [quote] If you think about it, it makes sense (at least in my mind it does Posted Image)

For example sake, let's say I'm playing you and I threw out 2 rocks...

After the 2nd rock I throw, you are going to think that there's no way that I'll throw rock again, so my next choice will either be paper or scissors.

So you're obvious (or safest) choice would be to throw scissors because based on your deduction that I won't throw a rock, if I throw scissors, we tie, but if I choose paper, you win.

So what I do is throw you for a loop and choose rock (again) - crushing your scissors.

It's the old "He'll NEVER do that again!" trick.

Mark, Thanks for explaining the strategy behind Rock, Paper, Scissors. Makes NFL coaching or world championship backgammon look like a joke.

I believe that in the RPS universe, 3 rocks is a stategy gambit along the lines of Chess strategies.

Now back to your regularly schedule lunacy...
A new life awaits you in the off-world colonies, the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure.


Let's Go . . . To the colonies !
