Janken
#1
Everyone must have played this right?
Popularly know as Paper, scissors, stone in the west.

What

variations did you play?
Do you say Pon or Poi?
Do you have any specific tactics? Always start with Guu

for instance?

Greenpeesu?
Did anyone play that nasty one where you grab your opponents cheek with each

victory and then do this nasty ritual "tate tate yoko yoko marukaite chon!" ouch

aa, natsukashii na.

We often

use a variation to pick teams for BBall.
Guuu paa jass (just guu or paa)

Did

anyone ever do the long drawn out version?

saisho ha gu, a mata mata gu,
ikariya chousuke
atama ha

pa
seigi ha katsu
a jyan ken pon!

then there's also "acchimuite hoi" which can be

enjoyed through adulthood as a rowdy drinking game! [Image: laughlong.gif]
Suffering is above, not below.

And everyone thinks that suffering is below.

And everyone wants to rise.

I still make major decisions playing janken!

For example,

if me and my sister are going out and we have difficulty chosing a restaurant, we narrow them down to two and

play janken for it. I also make my bf play janken in similar TOUGH decisions. But he's goes "Nooo, not

janken.. can't we just decide on something.."

For some strange reason, he often wins. He claims

he has got some kind of strategy but I don't know what it is. I just go for what feels right.

[Image: laugh.gif] ooOOH It's been awhile since I heard that one!!

Natsukashiiiii~~

I usually say "pon" and the "tate tate yoko yoko marukaite

chon!" we used to call that the "bulldog" we would sing bulllu bullu bullu dogu~ and do this

twisty thing like the "ito maki maki" thing Shimura-ken used to do on the Kato-chan ~ Ken-chan

show.

When I was

young me and my friends used to janken and whoever lost got a shippe (slapping wrist/forearm area with two

fingers) or a deko-pin (flicking forehead). This continued until the pain became unbearable and the loser gave

up. We were baka.

More

than you ever wanted to know about janken : (<a

href='http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%98%E3%82%83%E3%82%93%E3%81%91%E3%82%93'

target='_blank'>Japanese</a> and English).

I never knew that "saisho wa gu" originated from Shimura Ken

and the Drifters! And the World Rock Paper Scissors Society with a world championship??

[Image: laugh.gif]

I always said "poi", not

"pon". My dad, who being American didn't grow up playing it, always says "pon" but that

just sounds quaint to me. Besides, "pon" doesn't rhyme with "aiko de shoi" or

"acchi muite hoi"! I still have trouble keeping up with two or more rapid-fire consecutive

"aiko de shoi"s, especially since some people go "aiko de shoi, aiko de shoi, aiko de

shoi..." while others say "aiko de shoi ... shoi ... shoi" Is this another Kanto/Kansai thing??

There really needs to be a standard on this!

To prepare for a match, as kids we would try to forsee

the outcome with the help of a magic oracle formed by clasping your hands with crossed wrists, twisting the

clasped hands inwards, holding them up to your face, and peering in between the hands... worked every time...

or maybe it was just 33% of the time. [Image: biggrin.gif]

It also helps if your opponent is easy to read

and/or never changes their strategy. I've known my friend since our houikuen days and he still starts

scissor, then paper and rock. Sooo predictable!! [Image: laugh.gif]
