Description

Rock-paper-scissors is a hand game with its origins in East Asia. Two players make one of three signs with their hands at the same time, with one hand sign bating another (A beats B, B beats C, C beats A). 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 19th century. This version came to North America and Europe in the early 20th century through contact with Japan.
