Capitalize name of the game


I did some editing to the article, but I don't see how to edit the title of the article. I believe all three words of Rock Paper Scissors should be capitalized. It's debatable whether there should also be a comma or dash between the words, but at minimum they should be capitalized, since it is the name of the game.

As a rule, names of games are not capitalized - chess, tic-tac-toe etc. Hence, it would be Rock paper scissor in title, and rock paper scissors in running text - or perhaps hyphenated, if sources support that. There may be exceptions, however; e.g., Go is often capitalized. My inclination would be to revert your changes, but I'll refrain for now.-- (talk) 09:22, 25 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Fire and water


In the rock-paper-scissors-fire-water variant, what do the fire and water gestures look like? I've tried searching but this vital information is surprisingly hard to find. 2A00:23C7:548F:C01:D4AF:E337:1EE4:2553 (talk) 02:33, 26 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Quartz, Parchment, Shears


Someone added this as an alternate name for the game, but it's just a joke from Regular Show. Should be removed. Firelily (talk) 23:25, 15 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
