This game is played all over the world and for sure variations exist. Share some of the variations you encountered. Here, I saw a variation where instead of using a hand they use the feet, at the count of three they both jump and land with one feet forward as rock, feet together as paper, and feet wide apart as scissor. This is but a cosmetic variation where gestures are altered to indicate the three original symbols. There are also functional variations where the gestures have their meanings changed like in China it is scissor rock cloth and in Malaysia bird (scissor) drinks water (paper) and paper sinks rock and rock kills bird while some have a fourth or fifth element added.

Cool~!! I've never tried doing it with feet before~! hehe.. I'm from Malaysia, and yes I do know about the bird, water, and rock gesture. However, I hardly use that concept. My friends and I just stick to rock paper and scissors. There is one element that my friends and I created. It was the hammer!! It can kill both the bird and the rock! hehehe.. ;D

Correction for the representation of the feet variation, rock is two feet together, paper is feet wide apart and scissor is one foot forward. The bird gesture with all the fingertips joined together is different from the scissor gesture with only the index and middle fingers extended apart.
