We all know the good old game Rock, Paper, Scissors.
But now there's a WAY more fun version - Ninja, Cowboy, Bear*!!
I learned about it over the Christmas break and I will never go back. I mean, common! Which would you rather play?!

How to Play
stand back to back with your partner
walk three paces (each) away from each other
on the 4th beat, jump to face your partner, doing a pose of either a Ninja, a Cowboy, or a bear

Poses
Ninja - Arms crossed in ready stance
Cowboy - draw your guns
Bear - Claws up and growling

Feel free to add sound effects!

Rules
Ninja beats Cowboy using lighting speed ninja kicks
Cowboy beats Bear with his quick draw and perfect accuracy
Bear beats Ninja with a strong swipe of his clawed paw

Haha this seems fun. But no matter what, nothing can beat rock, paper, scissors. That has always been my favorite game in school days.

It looks funny and interesting. Though i never played this game in my childhood but still it reminded me about our childhood games.

if a ninja can slice through bone, then how does a bear beat a ninja? Especially if that ninja has "lightning reflexes"?
