(taken from the wikipedia page on Rock Paper Sissors Lizard Spock: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Paper_Scissors_Lizard_Spock

Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock is a five-gesture expansion of the classic selection method game rock-paper-scissors. It operates on the same basic principle, but includes two additional weapons: the lizard (formed by the hand as a sock-puppet-like mouth) and Spock[1] (formed by the Star Trek Vulcan salute). This reduces the chances of a round ending in a tie. The game was invented by Sam Kass with Karen Bryla.


I truthfully have no idea why this idea popped into my head but i saw a graphic of Sheldon from Big bang theory explaining the game (not the version i have posted here the one i saw was in color but i lost it on face book and sudenly thought HMM i could make this a card game

so i did

what i have posted here is a PDF of the cards including a box and score cards that fit in the box

Step 1: the cards

Step one print this PDF the first 2 pages are the front and optional back printing this 5 times will give you 50 cards which is more than enough

to make it easier i made the cards using the Avery 8371 business card template so that the can be printed on any precut busness carts that use that template

the box and score card can be printed on regular card stock
<p>This is so complicated!!!</p>
Hey! I don't know if you have thought about this!? But I'm thinking you could take it to the network of the Big Bang theory, or others and sell your cards! For people to buy them etc... Just a thought! Cause it looks cool, and functions as a real card game, like UNO. So why not try!!!?
you spelled scissors wrong
Thank you sooo much my friend loves this show and now I have a birthday present for her!
Great job. There's a lot of imagination in this! I hope you don't mind, but I redesigned the cards and design a bit. <a href="http://www.thegeektwins.com/2013/02/how-to-play-rock-paper-scissors-lizard.html#.URMsZfIrG1I" rel="nofollow">thegeektwins.com</a> I'd love to get your thoughts.
Now this is truly groovy. Nice work my friend.
