Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard

Remember this scene from The Simpsons?

Lisa (thinking): Poor Bart. Always chooses rock.

Bart (thinking): Good ol’ rock. Nothing beats that!

There comes a time when you know someone so well that you can always

tell which item they’re going to play in “Rock Paper Scissors”. For

that moment, I recommend Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard. The rules for the game are quite simple, and summarized below:

Graphic: Rules for 'Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard'.

Note that with five possible “hands” you can play, each “hand” can beat

two others and can be defeated by two others. I’m rather fond of “paper

disproves Spock”. Academia can be so cruel.
