Varieties of Rock-Paper-Scissors

A couple weeks ago someone mentioned over on Plurk, variants of Rock-Paper-Scissors so I thought I’d check it out. David Lovelace, a Flash animator, musician and cartoonist, decided that the normal three options for RPS is just too basic. And since there was already a five gesture version he took up the challenge of developing others: RPS-7, RPS-9, RPS-11, RPS-15, RPS-25 and a flabbergasting RPS-101. For each one he drew illustrated hands for the gesture and a cool maps showing how each gesture defeats the others, like this one for RPS-15:

And he even made a cool Flash game for the variants RPS-25 and lower. Next time you need to make a decision with a friend, maybe one of these can make it more fun. =)
