A Winning Strategy behind Rock, Paper, Scissors Game

When it comes to the Rock, Paper, Scissor game,
it's all in fun but still a little strategy never hurts.
Scientists in the UK have "studied" this popular playground game and concluded that one should start with scissors as it has a psychological advantage.

Research shows that a rock (or stone) is the most popular of the three possible moves in the game of quickfire hand gestures.
If your opponent expects you to pick stone, they will choose paper to outwit you.
Therefore, by going with scissors, you will win, because scissors beat paper. Who knew such strategy would prove helpful?
