The players show their shapes on the 4th prime. This is after a count of 3 and on the verbal cue of ‘Shoot’ this can also be a non-verbal cue. If bоth players choose the ѕаmе ѕhаре, thе gаmе іѕ tіеd and is іmmеdіаtеlу rерlауеd tо brеаk the tіе. Players agree to the best of series prior to competing.

Rock Paper Scissors Tournaments

The rules at the tournament are pretty simple and the players need to stand at each side of the table. There is also a referee that is guiding the game and giving yellow or red cards if some of the players are not behaving well.
At the beginning of the game, the players shake their hands, On the 4th prime players throw their move (Rock, Paper, Scissors, Shoot). Rock beats the scissors, Paper beats the rock and Scissors beat the paper. No moves like lizard, spock, rain or grenade are not going to be recognized by the referee.
Players are permitted the ability to confuse their opponents with announcing or giving a hint about their next move, with taunts and costumes.
