Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock

Has playing Rock Paper Scissors become too predictable or does every game end in a draw? Well here is a twist that reduces those chances! Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock!

How the additions work:

  • Rock crushes lizard.
  • Scissors decapitate lizard.
  • Lizard eats paper.
  • Lizard poisons Spock.
  • Paper disproves Spock.
  • Spock vaporizes rock.
  • Spock bends scissors.

I learned about the game from an episode of The Big Bang Theory on CBS (which is a great show about Geeks, if you haven’t seen it). Of course, the humor in the episode is that it doesn’t break the ties, since they are Star Trek geeks. I found the idea of the addition to the classic RPS to be quite amusing.

CBS put a clip together from The Big Bang Theory explaining the rules.

For all your Trekkie’s out there, I found these shirts at ThinkGeek that illustrate the rules and allow you to Show Your Geek! It comes in both a men’s and woman’s style. Click the shirt if you’re interested in one.
