Sally 'Wacky Nation' Raynes has emailed Strange Games to mention that the UK RPS Championships will take place in the JD Wetherspoon Knights Templar pub in Chancery Lane, central London on Saturday 22nd October 2011.
Over 300 people are expected to take part -there are no World RPS Championships this year so this will be the big one.
Everyone knows how to play the game so I'm not going to cover the rules but the UK RPS website has some fascinating tips on strategy and nomenclature of different RPS combinations. So, to encourage you to enter the event:
Rock Paper Scissors Gambits:
The Avalanche - Rock, Rock, Rock (beginner’s choice)
The Bureaucrat - Paper, Paper, Paper (boring, but effective)
The Crescendo - Paper, Scissors, Rock (crank up the pressure)
Scissors Sandwich - Paper, Scissor, Paper (very cheeky)
Denouement - Rock, Scissor, Paper (the surprise factor)
Fistful o Dollars - Rock, Paper, Paper (won 1967 World Championship)
Paper Dolls – Paper, Scissors, Scissors
The Toolbox – Scissors, Scissors, Scissors (a lethal combination)
