Come on, it’s a standard Roshambo play. You start to throw scissors but when you see the other player throwing rock you change it to paper at the last second.

Some people take Rock-Paper-Scissors (aka Roshambo) seriously. Very seriously. So seriously they organize championship matches with national rankings.

Lindsay is number two in the country and she’s not happy losing her top ranking. She’s not above throwing an illegal scipper. What will she do to Taylor, the number one player? Maybe Taylor’s not that keen on playing anyway. Rock-Paper-Scissors isn’t as fun as it used to be.
