It's got tension. It's got drama. It's got drinking and cash prizes. The UK Rock Paper Scissors Championships is back for its 8th year on 4 October.
250 challengers will use nothing but dogged psychology and their fingers to compete to be the ultimate RPS UK champion and win the top £100 prize. But if you get knocked out early by some cunning git who went with scissors to your sheet of A4, the night isn't over: individual challenges will take place alongside the main tournament. As part of your ticket you get £3 worth of RPS Challenge 'money' to bet on your own bouts — decide how much to stake and the winner takes it all. The person with the most 'cash' at 10pm wins £25 in actual sterling.
And the drinking? The championships take place in the Green Man pub near Bank station, but you might want to keep a clear head to size up whether your opponent's about to throw a (metaphorical) rock at you.
No word yet on whether the Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock variant will be permitted at any stage.
The UK Rock Paper Scissors Championships happens 6pm-10pm on 4 October at the Green Man, 1 Poultry, EC2. Tickets £16 individual, £15 group (up to 10 people) and must be bought in advance.
