Games for 6 - 10yrs Scissors-Paper-Stone

The players usually count aloud to three, each time either raising one hand in a fist and swinging it down on the count or holding it behind. On the third count the players change their hands into one of three gestures.


The gestures are:

  • Rock, represented by a clenched fist.

▪       Scissors, represented by two fingers extended and separated, sometimes coming together

▪       Paper, represented by an open hand, with the fingers extended and touching, in order to represent a sheet of paper (horizontal).

The objective is to select a gesture, which defeats that of the opponent. Gestures are resolved as follows:

▪       Rock blunts or breaks scissors: rock defeats scissors.

▪       Scissors cut paper: scissors defeats paper.

▪       Paper covers, sands or captures rock: paper defeats rock.

If both players choose the same gesture, the game is tied and the players throw again.
