    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.

    I'm failing to see the point of this.

    Is it just an ESP test then?

    But wait a minute here. Doesn't Rock "break" Scissors?

    Where's the "strategy" then?

    Are we just basically guessing 1, 2 or 3 then?
