Intro: How to Play Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock
In this Instructable, I will teach you how to play a variation of Rock, Paper, Scissors called Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock. The rules are very similar to the original game, but with a few more options to choose from.
Step 1: Rock
In the old version, rock smashes scissors, period. However, in the new and improved version rock smashes scissors, and rock smashes lizard.
Step 2: Paper
In the old game paper covers rock. That's about it. Now, in the new game paper covers rock, and paper disproves Spock.
Step 3: Scissors
Scissors cuts paper. Pretty standard rules, Right? Nope! Now scissors cuts paper, and also decapitates (cuts the head off of) lizard.
Step 4: Lizard
No picture for this one so I'll explain the hand gesture. Hold your hand as if you were holding a sock puppet, with your thumb under all of your other fingers. That is the gesture for lizard. Boom. But what does lizard do? Lizard eats paper and poisons Spock.
Step 5: Spock
Last but not least, Spock. Spock can, like every other gesture, beat two other gestures. First, Spock vaporizes rock. Second, Spock smashes scissors.
Step 6: Go Play a Game!
Now go and spread the legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock to all of your friends and see if anyone dares to challenge you!
