Freebie Friday Fiasco aka How Does “Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock” Work?
- If you are not part of the GeeezBlog Community Page on Facebook, you are really missing out. This past Friday we had our first Feebie Friday where the 25th commenter won a gift card to Sephora or Lowes. Except there were a few glitches. Two of the busiest competitors were posting to my personal facebook page and not the Community page. Only one person, an actual rocket scientist, was in the right place. So this went on and on and eventually it got so confusing that I couldnt pick a winner.
- It was at this point that I suggested that we use “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock” to settle the matter.
- Now, I would hope that all of you would understand how this game is played but, to my surprise, my cousin who I will not name to avoid embarrassment
BECKYDid not understand the whole history of this new evolution of the classic game. In fact, and I quote, “I choose that one cuz I miss Leonard Nemo”.
- For my former cousin, let me explain.
- If you do not watch Big Bang Theory you are really missing out. Binge watch now
- This game was first introduced on the show as a way of setting a dispute between Sheldon & Raj in the episode entitled “The Lizard Spock Expansion”. In the episode they both choose Spock over and over again. Original game credit is given to Sam Klass (I don’t know who he is but I don’t want to get sued)
- Here is how the game is played and players are defeated:
- Scissors cut 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
- Rock crushes Scissors
So, of course everyone choose Spock.
Becky chooses “Tree” Seriously Becky, what am I gonna do with you? Then said “I meant paper”
Brandon chooses Spock again.
Becky defeats Brandon (Paper disproves Spock)
Cathy chooses Lizard for the WIN!!! (Lizard eats Paper)
