3.5 stars

If you don't know the game "Rock Paper Scissors", it involves two players selecting then simultaneously revealing their choice of Paper, Rock or Scissors.  Paper beats Rock, Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beats Paper. 

Rock Paper ScissorsThis is a human-size version of Rock Paper Scissors, suitable for playing in teams.  The game involves having two clearly defined end zones.  

To begin, each team huddles and decides on which play to run- (rock, paper or scissors).  The two teams then meet in the playing area. If your team’s symbol wins, you chase the other team back into its end zone, trying to tag the team members before they get there.  If your team’s symbol loses, you must dash back to your own end zone before you’re caught.

Those people who get caught change to the other team. The game ends when everyone is on the same team.
