1, 2, 3, 4, 5!

This is a Japanese version of Rock, Paper, Scissors.


Partners face each other. At the end of the song, everyone counts to five. On the number five, each partner shows his hand: either rock, paper or scissors. The losing partners are “out.” The winning partners pair up with each other. (If both have the same hand, they both lose.)
