How did we come up with the idea?

If you are a true Star Trek fan, you already know the answer to this question.

Exactly 54 years ago, the first movie from the Star Trek series was released, and it’s known as The Original Series.

Spock was one of the main characters, a commanding officer of the starship Enterprise.

What ties Star Trek and our new game is the famous Vulcan salute hand gesture that became popular because commander Spock used it to salute.

What IS the Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock?

If you are a fan of the Rock-Paper-Scissors game, you will like this one for sure. It is an extension that will give you more variations to choose from, and also lower the chances of having a tie.

Instead of having only three options to choose from, Sam Kass with Karen Bryla created the game with five options: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, and Spock. But many of you don’t know who invented this game and know it from the popular TV Show The Big Bang Theory, which made this version very popular among their audience.
