Monkey-Pirate-Robot-Zombie-Ninja Game


If you watch The Big Bang Theory, you may be familiar with Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard.

I invented this game (with Karen Bryla) because it seems like when you know someone well enough, 75-80% of any Rock-Paper-Scissors games you play with that person end up in a tie. Well, here is a slight variation that reduces that probability. (Note that for those of you who like to swing your fist back and forth and say, “Rock, Paper, Scissors, GO!”, might want to continue to do that, replacing “Rock” with “One,” “Paper” with “Two,” and “Scissors” with “Three.”) This version is also nice because it satisfies the Law of Fives.

Well, now, there’s an even bigger one.  It’s called Monkey-Pirate-Robot-Ninja-Zombie: Rock Paper Scissors 9.0.

There’s also a few good suggestions on what to say:
Monkey
* Monkey fools Ninja
* Monkey unplugs Robot
Suggested noise: ee-ee-eek!

Robot
* Robot chokes Ninja
* Robot crushes Zombie
Suggested noise: ex-ter-min-ate!

Pirate
* Pirate drowns Robot
* Pirate skewers Monkey
Suggested noise: arrrrr!

Ninja
* Ninja karate chops Pirate
* Ninja decapitates Zombie
Suggested noise: keeee-ah!

Zombie
* Zombie eats Pirate
* Zombie savages Monkey
Suggested noise: braaaaaaaaaainsss!

Thanks go out to Boing Boing for this one.
