Description

Rock-paper-scissors is a hand game with its origins in East Asia. The names and actual gestures vary over time and place. Jan-Ken, a Japanese version, uses the hand gestures for rock, paper, and scissors, from the late nineteenth century. This version came to North America and Europe in the early twentieth century through contact with Japan.

Rules

Two players make one of three signs with their hands at the same time, with one hand sign bating another (Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beats Paper, Paper beats Rock).
