Rock Scissors Paper

I've been sick all week and haven't done much... so instead I'm pleased to report on Rock Scissors Paper instead. This game is popular in Scandanavia and is called the same name in Norway as elsewhere ("Stein-Saks-Papir").

Here's a fun surprise: in Sweden they don't play Rock-Scissors-Paper, instead they play Rock-Scissors-Bag ("Sten-Sax-Påse). Bag! Yes, I laughed a lot when I found this out – we all did – but if you stop to think about it for a moment... Bag makes a lot more sense than Paper, doesn't it?
