For the record, the girls in the Coachella movie throw on the third beat, even if they say "paper, scissors, rock"... They're good people.

I thought it was common knowledge to do it that way.

"poor ***dictable bart. Always chooses rock"

"Good ol' rock. Nothing beats that!"

Jello - there was a heated debate about this over a year ago. The thread went for something ridiculous like 15 pages debating whether it is throw on the third or fourth beat.

Obviously, it's the third beat. Only fascists throw on the fourth beat.

It's 1-2-3-shoot. What planet are you other people from? The extra beat (3) gives you the edge of being able to see any slight tics that could suggest, say a "paper" coming at you (ie, the hand starts to tilt ever so gently).

Yeah York, this message board selectively places posts. I posted mine after you were called a vapid troll, but before you retorted with vomit breath sixtoe sloth.

that soesn't change the fact that it's 1-2-3-shoot...

You're sharp, which is surprising for someone that throws on the fourth beat.

Even when I lived in St. Louis (Ballwin, to be ***cise), I threw on the 4th beat. Listen York, if we ever run into each other, you can throw on the third beat, then I'll throw on the 4th. We'll play for $20 a throw.

You do that, and everyone will know that you're a RPS cheat. That's why people throw on the fourth beat. Because they're fourth-beat cheats.

It's all about the 3rd beat. Anyone who thinks otherwise thinks The ****** will be at Coachella.

Has anyone ever named a band ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS?

I'm just saying...that seems like a natural no-brainer name for a band.

why dont you make a rock paper scissors beat poll?


the wiki pages mentions both ways "On the third count, or on a further beat after the third count, the players change their hands into one of three gestures, which they then "throw" by extending it towards their opponent."

or as per the Venture Bros

Clarification: I do not think I was drunk on the basis of my three count opinion, but on my subsequent posts.

I've always gone on "3" but, I've also seen that in competitions they go on the fourth beat.

If you study game theory, rock-paper-scissors is actually quite interesting. You can make alot of logical assumptions about your opponent and thus guestimate what they are going to throw. For example, if you and I were having a RPS for who rides shotgun. I would bet you would throw rock ad its a sign of dominance and the first thing thrown by rookies the majority of the time. So I throw paper and win. You see my paper and (now this has been statiscally proven) there is a tendency for rookies to take whatever their opponent threw last round and play whatever had beaten that (i.e. If I threw paper last round, you would throw scissors this round.) SO I throw the rock second time and get shotgun. It works trust me.

I studied it in strategy classes in my MBA program.

































Which means I'm right about the 3 count thing.
