Back in 1998, Sam Kass came up with a new version of Rock Paper Scissors with some friends. Theorising that friends will usually get a draw in the regular game, the new version added Lizard and Spock to the mix for more varied outcomes between people who know each other. All you Big Bang Theory watchers (and if you don’t watch it then why not?) have probably seen the game featured on there by now as one of Sheldon’s theories. It’s a good episode but has unfortunately caused people to start accusing the original creator of the game of stealing the idea from Big Bang Theory.
This is a reimagined version of that game created specifically for me and my geeky ilk.
