    Rock-Paper-Scissors Game

    To Win: Paper hides Rock; Scissors cuts Paper; Rock breaks Scissors. Here are some findings on strategy from the UK:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/3319456/The-secret-to-winning-at-rock-paper-scissors.html

    As the house, so to speak, I'll email the first ten picks to myself immediately after posting this thread and will post its date and time line with those picks here as soon as ten individual picks are posted (if there's interest, we'll repeat the routine). One point for your first correct pick, two for your second, three for your third, etc. Play as often as you wish taking turns.

    Who will reign as King or Queen of the Paper, Rock, Scissors Game Hill during 2014? May the best strategist win. Enjoy.

    The good thing about rocks is that you can throw them at people's heads.

    Interesting Fact: Scissors can't cut through toilet paper.

    I went abroad once. The toilet was, and I kid you not, literally a hole in the ground.

    If you weren't obliged to dig it yourself, count yourself blessed.

    Ponderable, thanks for christening the thread; which of the three options did you pick?

    Edit Note: Draws in our game highly unlikely with the weighted points: "One point for your first correct pick,
    two for your second, three for your third, etc."
    Play as often as you wish taking turns." (OP)

    I pick scissors for your game.

    You know some crazy guy invented a 101 option game based on this?
