However unlike throwing a coin or dice or flipping a straw, this method doesn’t depend entirely on luck. Rock, Paper, sissors can be played and won with skill.

How to Play Rock Paper Scissors

The two players count out loud to three or call out Rock! Paper! Scissors! each time raising one hand in a fist and swinging it down on the count and at Scissors! the players reveal their call using one of the three gestures. Remember the fist comes down each time one of the words is said out and the gesture is made on the third count after the players say Scissors. Sometimes players employ the word shoot! which is the fourth word said and reveal their gesture then.

Rock Paper Scissors rules

The men’s basketball rules committee approved a measure Thursday that would move the 3-point line back one foot in 2008 — from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet, 9 inches. If approved by the playing rules oversight committee on May 25, it would mark the first major alteration to the 3-point shot since its adoption in 1986-87.

Chairman Larry Keating said the committee considered two proposals. The other would have moved the line to 20 feet, 6 inches, the same distance as international 3-pointers. Both are shorter than the NBA line, which is 23 feet, 9 inches at the top of the key and 22 feet at its shortest point in the baseline corners.

“We made it a point to come up with a distance that was correct for us and that didn’t necessarily mimic the international line,” Keating said.

Women’s rules committee chairwoman Ronda Seagraves said the 3-point line will remain unchanged in women’s basketball.

The reason for delaying the change until November 2008 is money. Keating said it was unfair to charge schools a surprise expenditure when most of the budgets for next year have already been approved.
