Tips on how to win:
Costumes, theme songs and a competative edge are what fuels this fire. We suggest practicing against your co-workers, Uber drivers, or even your dog so you can come ready to throw down your best sequence of Rock, Paper and Scissors. We highly suggest you eat, drink and sleep Rock, Paper, Scissors in the days leading up to the competition. Consumption of Troegs beers during the Tournament may enhance your performance as well.
