Poll: rock-paper-scissors-fire-water.

I have made a balanced five-way rock paper scissors game.

check it out, tell me what you think, try playing it, discuss! and have fun!

rock beats: Scissors and Fire
rock is beaten by: Paper and Water

Scissors beats: Paper and water(for balance reasons, I know it doesn't make sense)
Scissors is beaten by: Rock and Fire

Paper beats: Rock and Water(like a paper towel)
Paper is beaten by: Scissors and Fire

Fire beats: Paper and Scissors(melts the scissors)
Fire is beaten by: Rock and Water

Water beats: Rock (the rock sinks) and Fire
Water is beaten by: Paper and scissors

Every one of the five wins against two, and loses against the other two, so It is, if nothing else, balanced.

Edit: just a funny, random idea I had, In no way is meant to replace super-simple rock-paper scissors :P, see reply #3 for how to make a hand-sign for fire and water

Imagining how one could possibly make a hand sign for fire or water is making me chuckle.

Hmm, I didn't even think of that... Probably a significant oversight...

Fire: turn your hand palm-up and wiggle your fingers like licks of flame?
water: make wave movements with your hand?

Sounds complicated, Rock paper scissors... There is no flaw in that game I see no need to improve it... Well that's my opinion.

Sounds good to me but why fix what isn't broke?

Rock would never, really, lose to anything short of TNT or an industrial drill.

I approve of this new version of the game - it suits my pedantry marginally more than the original.

I never got papper covers rock, if anything that means the rock is now hidden and can attack with suprise.

how do you do water and fire as hand gestures?

Meh, I don't like it that much.

How do scissors cut water?

See reply number 3. I kinda left that out at first... :|

Cutting water is something I only thought people did while surfing. Learn something new everyday. :)

Big bang theory already did a five way

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 vaporises rock
Rock crushes scissors

I could see this game turning to stark hilarity if unknowning people viewed the rounds from a distance.

Bart Simpson: good old rock, nothing beats rock. Lisa: Poor Bart, always chooses rock...

its a good day when you can quote the simpsons!

Were is the Psychic type wins every time option?

I was waiting for Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock. Nice work though, you should try using this sometime with some friends and see what happens.

I have a better idea!

Honestly, I don't know why people see the point in making a more complicated version of Rock Paper Scissors? Are we back in Grade 6? The only reason to play it is to quickly determine something between people based on luck. If you want a game play Chopsticks or something instead.
