Paper Rock Scissors Lizard Spock Printable from the Nerd Nest

Of course as nerds we’re excited about Star Trek Into Darkness coming out and are so excited to participate in an awesome Star Trek blog hop today! Check out our project, then hop along to see what everyone else is making.

When we thought about what sort of project we wanted to make for the hop, we immediately thought of the most common reference to Star Trek in our house… but it’s more of a Big Bang Theory reference. You see, we settle disputes around here with Paper Rock Scissors Lizard Spock. If you’ve never seen the scene we’re referencing, watch it here.

Jake and I do tie a million times when playing Paper Rock Scissors, so PRSLS is the perfect solution for us. And it’s funny, so if we’re having a cranky sort of dispute (i.e. We’re already hungry and can’t agree on what to eat.), we solve the conflict AND feel happier. How’s that for “Live Long and Prosper”?

The game is confusing if you’re just learning it, and our friends tend to think we’re crazy when we break it out to settle things in front of them. The last time that happened, it was 3 o’clock in the morning, a big group of friends was hanging out at our house, and we had to decide who went to bed early to wake up with Jonas the next day. I lost.

We thought it would be fun to create a poster to hang in our house to help people figure the game out! I did the doodling and Jake turned a photo of Leonard Nimoy into a stamp. Teamwork for the win.

Download the 8.5 x 11 printable here!

Printing and hanging this poster we made in our house will not only help our friends follow along or learn to play themselves, but it will also be sort of a symbol of how we steer the ship around here. Also we can’t go wrong with nerd pride art. You can use it to learn and show off your nerd pride too! Just remember that the arrows are always pointing to the winner, and you’ve got it.

Keep on hoppin’ to see Star Treck goodness from other awesome Trekkies!
