Rock, Paper, Scissors to Victory

HOW DO I WIN ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS EVERY TIME
Many believe Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) is simply a game of chance and luck. However, like chess or Super Mario Kart, RPS is a game of strategy, observation and intelligence. Here are eight easy steps to winning every time.

HISTORY
The earliest form of Rock, Paper, Scissors was seen in 18th century Japan, called Jan-ken-pon

STRATEGY


1. ROCK-IT
Males have the tendency to produce rock on their first throw. If you are playing against one, try using paper.


2. TWISTED SCISSOR
Experienced RPS throwers will play on your naivety and throw paper, hoping you throw rock. Counter with scissors.



3. COPYCAT
Inexperienced (or flustered) RPS players will often subconsciously deliver the form that beat their last throw. Counter with the opposite


4. DOUBLE ON THE ROCKS
When you see a Two-Rock run, you know your opponents next move will be Scissors or Paper. People hate being predictable and a firm indication of predictability is to come out with the same throw three times in row. Counter with Rock.


5. FINGER FINDINGS
As your opponent prepares to throw, watch his fingers carefully, Fingers will move or tense depending on the form they are about to to throw.


6. PAPER PLEASE
Paper is thrown the least in a match, Use it as an unexpected option.

7. PREP WORK
Watch your future opponent play others. Do they have a favorite form? Do they maintain a consistent throwing pattern? Counter accordingly.
