Different ways to play rock paper scissors

Rock, Paper, Scissors (or Paper, Scissors, Rock!?) (or Scissors, Paper, Rock?!) is an all-time classic game. It's universally known and loved, it's easy to pick up and it only requires two people to play. If you're interested in changing things up from the original, it's time to try one of the alternate versions we've collected on Youth Group Games.

These rock paper scissor game variants are great for large groups and are relatively easy to explain, because the core rules of the game are already known by most players.
