If you watch The Big Bang Theory religiously like I do, then you will immediately recognize the “Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock” game which Sheldon introduced as a superior version of the standard “Rock Paper Scissors” game.
According to Sheldon, “Anecdotal evidence suggests that in the game of rock-paper-scissors, players familiar with each other tie 75–80% of the time due to the limited number of outcomes. I suggest ‘rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock’. It’s very simple. Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and—as it always has—rock crushes scissors.”
