27. Rock, Paper… Elephant?

16 Feb

FACT: In Vietnam they never play ‘Rock-paper-scissors.’ The reason being that they got the game from 19th Century Japan, just like the rest of the world, and they created their own name for it. The Vietnamese call it Elephant-Human-Ant.

Also ever year there is a worldwide Rock-Paper Scissors tournament and the prize money tallies at an impressive $50,000. If you want to know more about advanced Rock-paper-scissors tactics check out this infographic.
