The Throws: There are three permissible “throws” in RPS: Rock, Paper, and Scissors. Rock crushes scissors, scissors cuts paper, and paper covers rock. There are no exceptions. When two players “shoot” the same throw, it is a stalemate and they must throw again. After three “ties,” players may be subjected to a friendly/fun punishment. The rules/details are as follows:
- Rock can be thrown any way as long as the fist is clenched.
- Scissors is formed with your index finger and middle finger extended and shaped like a “V”. It can be thrown horizontally or vertically.
- Paper is formed by extending all your fingers out. It is always delivered horizontally with palm down.
- The “Pump” consists of closing a fist, holding it out in front of your body with elbow bent at a 45 degree angle, and thrusting it up and down three times. This must be done in sync with the opposing player.
- The “Shoot” is when a player actually delivers the throw. It comes after the first three pumps ie: “one, two three, SHOOT!”
- The delivery of the shoot must be in sync with the opponent. If the shoot or the pump is not in sync at any time, the referee may declare the action dead, or penalize the player at fault. (Penalties have ranged from push-ups to quacking like a chicken and other fun torture!)
- Two out of three wins the match until finals.
- All referees’ calls are final.
