RPS-25 @ Newgrounds.com

The classic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors...but can be expanded to five, seven, nine, 11, 15, or 25 items, including:

-Air

-Alien

-Axe

-Bowl

-Cockroach

-Devil

-Dragon

-Dynamite

-Fire

-Gun

-Lightning

-Man

-Monkey

-Moon

-Nuke

-Paper

-Rock

-Scissors

-Snake

-Sponge

-Sun

-Tree

-Water

-Wolf

-Woman



Nuke isn't as powerful as you might think...Water short-circuits it, Alien defuses it, Cockroach survives it, etc....  Some of the ways of "defeating" are kind of weak, but nothing can be invincible, obviously.  I'm pretty sure there's a pattern...of the ones I've seen, the first twelve items closer to an item clockwise defeat it, and it can defeat the twelve items closer to it counter-clockwise.



EDIT: Found the original picture:

I don't get Wolf vs. Nuke and Paper vs. Moon...

WOLF-2 is probably a fictional vehicle which can launch nukes, while paper moon is an English expression, isn't it?



In any case, they're both reaching pretty far to make a connection, which shows just how unintuitive this variant of the game is.

This reminds me of a variation I made up while bored on a 2nd or 3rd grade field trip: Rock-Laser-Mirror. Rock smashes mirror, laser cuts rock, mirror reflects laser.



Terra's right, though. This game in much too unintuitive to be fun. Rock-Paper-Scissors is fun because anyone can play it and it makes sense.
