About This Quiz

Rock, paper, scissors is a classic game that you've probably played during your childhood. The game is as follows: two or more people create one of three hand gestures that equates to "rock," "paper" or "scissors." Rock beats scissors, but loses to paper. Paper beats rock, but succumbs to scissors. And finally, scissors is stronger than paper, but is no match for a rock. 

While most people believe that rock, paper, scissors is a game of blind luck, some swear by their own personal strategies. One strategy that a person may use is to "read" their opponent(s). This is achieved by reading their body language, eye movements and facial expressions to determine what hand gestures they might use. This game is usually played in multiple rounds as well, so you can even note any similar patterns that a person may use. For example, if you notice that your opponent has been using "rock" for the past few rounds, they're likely to use "rock" again. But be careful though, as they might want you to think this way so they can switch up their pattern to something like "paper" or "scissors" instead. At the end of the day, rock, paper, scissors is a fun game that allows you to guess the 'moves' of your opponent.
