Activity Description

Activity Overview

This is a fun and loud energizing ice breaker activity based on the well-known “Rock, Paper, Scissors” game – with a twist: the losing players become the fan of the winners as the winner advances to the next round. This goes on until a final showdown with two large cheering crowds!

It can be played with adults of all ages as well as kids and it always works! 


  • Get the group energized and cheering

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Every participant has to find a partner

  2. Play “Rock, Paper, Scissors” against each other until the first win.

  3. The winner has to find a new opponent. The losing player becomes a cheering fan of the winner. 

  4. The winner plays against the new opponent, while their fans cheer them. 

  5. The winner of the second game searches for a new opponent, while the losing team joins their cheering crowd. 

  6. Repeat until there are only two opponents with a huge fan crowd cheering for them. The last two have to play until one player has won 2 times. 

Activity Rules

The basic rules of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” are the following: 

The players count to 3. On 3 they form one out of 3 symbols with their hands: 

1) “Rock” – the fist

2) “Paper” – the straight hand

3) “Scissors” – index and middle-finger pointing out

Each symbol wins and loses against one other symbol:

“Rock” brakes the “Scissors”.

“Scissors” cuts the “Paper”.

“Paper” wraps the “Rock”
