About

The classic game of Rock Paper Scissors – Revolutionized! RPS Revolution transforms what was represented by your hands – the “rock” (fist), the “paper,” (flat hand) and the “scissors”
(v-shaped index and third fingers) – into whimsical, handheld figures that kids, big and small can enjoy! Families dig it too!

On the count of 3, (instead of rock, paper, scissors), show your KNIGHT, PRINCESS, or DRAGON!

Colorfully themed characters are grouped in sets of three or “Trios” and ( with the power
of a story
) can defeat or be defeated by the other. Players can draw from the same themed Trio OR mix up sets for even more imaginative play! Think Spaceship, Dragon, Alien! The game is only limited by your imagination.

Mom and Dad can get in on the fun as a way to settle the age-old Saturday night dispute, “Who gets the last piece of pizza?” 

RPS Revolution IS old fashioned Family Fun in a simple, fast and easy to play way!

1. Face off with your opponent(s), concealing your Trio.
2. On the count of 3, reveal your choice.
3. Rejoice! Or grunt. Did you defeat or were you defeated? Was it a Tie?
4. Give points (and the evil eye).
5. Repeat!

If you forget, don’t fret. The bottom of each figure is marked with a R, P, or an S. This comes in handy when you mix and match Trios and come up with your own adventures!

Two Ways to Play

1. Strategy: Choose which figure you’ll play for each round
2. Chance: Randomly select one or let one roll out of your hand, surprising you and your opponent!

More ways to Play:

1. Play until someone wins 15 points
2. Play in a group: pair up and have winners play winners to find an ultimate champion. 
4. Put all the figures in a tumbler cup and shake them up and have one fall into your hand without looking, pass the cup and have your opponent do the same and show your choice on the count of three
5. Make up fun rules about what happens when you have a tie:
       * Do you thumb wrestle or say the alphabet backwards?
       * The next one to win after a tie gets double points or has to do
         double laps around the table.
6. Decide that the way your figure lands gives or takes away points.

There is lots of imaginative fun and laughter ahead.  If you’ve invented a cool idea of how to play to the game, add a new level, or a crazy new trio, we want to hear from you! Email us at info@rpsrevolution.com.  Fun ideas to come at www.rpsrevolution.com

As a kid, I played Rock Paper Scissors with my friends and used it as a fun way to decide things – no feelings got hurt, after all, it was the luck of the draw. Today, as a mom and self-proclaimed Big Kid, I developed RPS Revolution as a way to play and connect with my kids, in a simple way. I noticed that my kids enjoy games more if they can share it with their friends, collecting and trading and making deals. Trios are designed for quick, thrilling play, and are small enough to fit in little hands or stuffed in pockets for playing on-the-go.

RPS Revolution is good fun. It is:

          Interactive: Encourages kids and families to interact with each other and to accept 
          winning and losing, over and over again.

          Imaginative: Endearing characters act as a launching pad for pretend play.

          Practical: Offers an objective, pain-free way to decide critical family matters like: 
                    • Who gets to de-skunk the dog?               
                    • Who gets the last clean pair of socks

And kids will love to:

          Collect: There are going to be so many amazing trios in tons of fun themes! Mixing up
          Trios and creating new adventures is just plain fun. Adding Rare Edition characters keeps
          opponents on their toes!

          Trade: Nothing is better than circling up with some friends to win and lose, make deals
          and trade.

2D Design of the Magical Kingdom Trio

Magical Kingdom Trio comes to life!

2D Designs of the Outer Space Trio ready to go

When the funding goal is reached both the Magical Kingdom and Outer Space Trio will be produced, but we don't want to stop there. Watch for stretch goals to unveil more themes and be the first to own!

Collaborating with a toy designer with 30 years of toy and manufacturing experience, we have worked hard to design, get ready to manufacture and bring the unique RPS characters to life. One prototype of The Magical Kingdom Trio has been produced and the complete design work for the first four Trios is finished.

Molds need to be fabricated to create each new figure and a minimum order of 5,000 trios is required per theme. To green-light the project, the campaign goal is set at $37,000.

The manufacturing costs include: 

If we reach our campaign goal of $37,000, we will be able to produce and send to you:
          • The Magical Kingdom Trio        
          • The Outer Space Trio

Like with any Kickstarter project, you can pledge now, but you are onlycharged at the end of the campaign if the project goal is reached and we are ready to produce. BACK US NOW and be a part of the RPS Revolution – connecting families and kids through fun and simple play!

Help us bring even more Trio themes to life! Stay tuned for stretch goals and fun during the campaign.

Why Pledge Now? If you pledge at the start of the campaign, we can reach our funding goal of $37,000 faster and not only begin production of the first two Trios, but then move toward "unlocking" more themes to be produced when we reach stretch goals.  If you support us at Reward Levels 6 (MAJOR PLAYER PACK – $55) or Reward Level 7 (LEADER OF THE PACK – $65), you will be able to choose from ALL the themes that are unlocked during the campaign.

Risks and challenges

With a toy designer/producer with 30 years of experiences and long term relationships with the manufacturing company heading up the project, many of the risks and challenges have been eliminated. There is always the risk that each step might take longer than expected but we believe we have set a timeline for each stage that is reasonable.

We will do everything we can to stay on top of projected timetables and check in frequently with our affiliates so that we are notified of any potential delays as soon as possible.
