Even though there are no actual rocks, paper or scissors in the game rock-paper-scissors – I had to include it. Rock-paper-scissors is a hand game played by at least two people. The players count aloud to three, or speak the name of the game (i.e. “Rock Paper Scissors”) Count aloud to three or say (Rock Paper Scissors), each time raising your hand in a fist and swinging it down on the count. After the 3rd count the players change hands into one of three gestures, which they then “throw” by extending it towards their opponent.
Rock, represented by a clenched fist – rock defeats scissors.
Scissors, represented by two fingers extended and separated – scissors defeats paper.
Paper, represented by an open hand, with the fingers connected (horizontal) -paper defeats rock.
If both players have the same gesture, it’s a tie and you go again. From wikipedia.
