[LEFT]That's the entire thing. The rules for one of the oldest games in the world are so simple. Best out of 5 is usually how it is played. RPS is a universally played game.

[COLOR=#000000][FONT=Calibri]The origins of Rock Paper Scissors are easy to trace. In 1985 Dr Daniel Fisher of Oakland, California was scouring the island of Tristan da Cunha for rare fruit bat specimens when he came across an interesting cave painting. The picture depicted a bull or a horse or something with a bunch of stick figure guys parading around. Immediately to the right of that however was a painting of a stone, a papyrus leaf, and two arrowheads crossed. The items were displayed in a circle with a line from the rock to the arrowheads, the arrowheads to the papyrus and the papyrus to the stone. Wondering what was the meaning of it all Fisher uttered, “I wonder what is the meaning of it all” In response the cameraman said its rock paper scissors. Its original use was to determine which tribesman had to wash the old priests’ warted backs…yum.
