Icon of Rock Paper Scissors

Rock Paper Scissors is a two-player mini-game that was first introduced in January 2011. An open invitation can be started through the Games menu, which will create a popup above the player for other Jammers to click and join. Alternatively, other players can be challenged directly by using the Games tab on Player Cards.


This game follows the same general rules as the real-world game by the same name. The player has around 3 seconds to click the button for either "Rock", "Paper", or "Scissors" before the timer runs out. If the player fails to pick a hand in time, one will be chosen at random. Each hand can beat one other hand, tie with itself, and lose to the remaining hand. For example, rock beats scissors, scissors beat paper, and paper beats rock. There are three possible rounds, but the player only needs to win two of them to win the game. The winner receives 20 Gems while the player who loses gets 5 Gems.
