Rock-Paper-Scissors: A Game of Skill?

Sure, Rock-Paper-Scissors is a fun game, but a game of skill? Really?

Game Colony seems to think so. And so do thousands of players. “RPS” may have some of the simplest rules of any game, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t strategy involved. And now that there is money at stake, if you’re going to play the game, you better bring all ten fingers.

Play Rock-Paper-Scissors for cash, peruse the rock-paper-scissors forums (which, to be honest, aren’t the most frequented forums out there–still, they exist, which says something), or jump right into mini-tournament play and get your name on the Ladders (Game Colony’s version of a leaderboard). The Top Ten Rock-Paper-Scissors champions win free tickets, which can be used for entry into cash tournaments.

This just goes to show you that if there are Rock-Paper-Scissors tournaments online, there’s not much you won’t find on the Internet. Raise your hand if you’re going to play!
