TIPS TO WIN
If you thought Rock Paper Scissors was a game of chance, think again! There are many ways to increase your chances of winning. Here are a few
1. Surprise your opponent – if you’re big, scary and muscular, throw paper
2. Wear fancy dress to confuse your opponent – i.e. a scissors themed fancy dress and throw paper.
3. Wear sunglasses – to prevent your opponent from studying your eyes
4. Try reverse psychology! – tell them what you are going to throw and let them figure out if you will
5. Scissors is statistically the least thrown – therefore paper is statistically the safest throw
