I thought rock crushed scissors. Rock sharpens scissors? Who wins?

I'm so confused.

Scissors, Paper, Stone?

I always thought it was Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Growing up in Hawaii, we always knew this as "Jan Ken Po", although it now seems to have been elevated to a new level. There seems to be a bit of confusion an the spelling though. Some say Jyankenpo or maybe just Janken.

Or, maybe we should all just check out this world survey of the game.

Some people do take the strategy of the game seriously.

1) Follow a pattern - you "win"
2) There's never a tie

Sadly, this variant on rock, paper, scissors appears to be the best flash thingy to come from Chunk Ideas. They have a snowball game which is completely uneventful, and a pac-man ripoff called "Flirt Alert" which uses bad keyboard controls. Hadn't they ever heard of arrow keys on the number pad?

Of course, this isn't the only way to play Paper-Scissors-Rock on the web.
