Rock, Paper, Scissors, Arghhh!

Ever play Rock-Paper-Scissors when you were a kid? Sometimes if you needed to decide something, that was the best game you had. Sure, it used to be eeenie-meenie-miney-moe, but soon you figured out that it was RIGGED! With two choices, it was always the other thing besides what you started with. (Sorry kids. Somebody had to tell you sooner or later)
So Rock-Paper-Scissors it was. Sometimes, people have added extra characters, like Spock and Lizard.
Well. One internet blogger just could not stop at a five-place Rock-Paper-Scissors. He and his step-daughter did a 7-place RPS. Then a 9-place RPS. Soon, it was completely out of hand. There was an 11-place RPS and then, this past week, a 15-place Rock-Paper-Scissors! We've got Rock, Gun, Lightning, Devil, Dragon, Water, Air, Paper, Sponge, Wolf, Tree, Human, Snake, Scissors, Fire. I don't know if anybody could ever PLAY a 15-position RPS, but it would be a hoot to watch.

Interesting post Dan, I looked at both those websites, gives new meaning to its in the matrix with the 15 item one. And with a trillion permutations, according to the author, it is quite mind boggling.
