For those rochambeau enthusiasts for whom the expanded Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard variant is still too inflexible, David C. Lovelace has been working feverishly at introducing further and stranger hand gestures (such as Cockroach, Monkey, Devil and Dynamite) into the formula. In this 1- or 2-player computer interpretation of his vital work, there are options to play variants from the traditional three-way set ramping up to 5-element rounds, 7 elements, 9, 11, 15 and the grand slam, the titular 25-choice version of Rock Paper Scissors, with 300 outcomes (each with unique relationship-appropriate verbs) possible between its interweaving elements.


RPS-25 Browser Poor Spock (the gesture cements it) has been relegated to the status of mere Alien.  He still, however, triumphs.

The author's most recent 101-gesture variant of the game is not yet accommodated in any interactive software form... perhaps because there is no computer on the market yet powerful enough to calculate the four-septquardragintillion (MobyGames approver Xoleras notes: as this is known in Europe as quattuorvigintillion, probably better to write in as 4*10144) possible layouts of its 5,050 outcomes.
