Rock paper scissors is a time tested way of resolving conflict and making decisions.
We've gone to the geeky max by adding a Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock die to the cards. Its like Rock Paper Scissors only more.
“Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons spock, spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves spock, spock vaporizes rock. And as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”
Our RPSLS die is an exact copy of the Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock dice that went gangbusters on Kickstarter in 2012. It is used by permission of Sandeep and Dave, who made the originals.
I know the addition of Lizards and Spocks (while deliberately absurd) is a bit insulting to purists. Never fear, you can play regular Roshambo with the cards by just redrawing if you get a Lizard or a Spock.
In the original die the sixth face meant 'reroll'. On the cards this side is never shown, the reroll has effectively been done for you. So although this is a six sided die, only five sides can ever appear.
