Images And Words Week 209 - Paper, Rock, Scissors

Welcome and greetings from Sweden!

This game probably one of the oldest games in the world. It usually played by two people,
where players simultaneously form one of three shapes with an outstretched hand.

The "rock" beats scissors, the "scissors" beat paper and the "paper" beats rock;
if both players throw the same shape, the game is tied. Other names for the game
in the English-speaking world include roshambo, and other orderings of the three items.

* Rock, represented by a clenched fist * Scissors, represented by two fingers extended and separated,
sometimes coming together
* Paper, represented by an open hand, with the fingers extended
and touching, in order to represent a sheet of paper (horizontal)
The objective is to select a gesture which defeats that of the
opponent. Gestures are resolved as follows:
* Rock blunts or breaks scissors: rock defeats scissors.
* Scissors cut paper: scissors defeats paper.
* Paper covers, sands or captures rock: paper defeats rock.
If both players choose the same gesture, the game is tied and the players throw again.
The game is sometimes played as "best of three".

You may use any combination of the three elements as you wish. A portrayal of the three,
a pair scissors cutting paper, paper hiding rock, a scissors blunted by rock.

The theme this week is


Wish you all the Best

The New Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo creatively edited or not.
All photos or collages must contain words somewhere on the image or placed in an area on the image most suitable to be seen clearly by all.
The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography in a creative manner.
Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given to the original author, unless unknown, whereby a simple "author unknown" will suffice.
Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like, comical, but never obscene .
Posts can either contain one word, sayings, statements, quotes, or full poems ... As long as the words fit the theme, it is Your choice.
All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form
with a link back to it being left here or on Muze.
New topics will be posted on Sundays.
Posts can be made through to the following Saturday.
One post per person only please..
