I like to think that I can outsmart my opponents at rock-paper-scissors. But does the game really have strategy, or is it best to play randomly?
A new study has found that players tend to stick with winning actions, and shift their losing ones in the order of the name 'rock-paper-scissors'. It could be a hard-wired response in our brains.
I didn't know that playing a simple game could reveal secrets of my brain. But I'm keen to see if I win more next time I play.
