YES, THERE IS A WINNING STRATEGY FOR ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS.


Wanna guarantee you never have to call for takeout, or wind up being designated driver for the night? Follow this "can't lose" strategy for the ultimate decision method – ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS.


Tip 1. Watch out for those trends. A lot of players often switch to what just beat them. They will most likely throw rock after just being smashed by one on the previous play. Instead, throw paper on the next round for a near certain victory.

Tip 2. Most newbies almost always lead with rock, so open with an easy win by starting with paper. 

Tip 3. Players almost never throw the same thing three times in a row. If they throw two papers in a row, toss a rock out there next to take that round.

  2. It all makes sense! I used to play all the time as a kid, but had no strategy. No wonder I usually lost!

  6. I think it's so commonly known that people typically start with rock that one should double bluff and consider starting with scissors. Although if you're wrong you get whooped by rock, better to go for a draw than to lose.

  16. I remember a computer simulation of this and the AI wins most rounds because it bases its moves on thousands of previously played rounds.
