Wow, that was a pretty kind way of saying "not a chance".

Like Master Roshambollah winning at a game of RPS that isn't "made for TV." Sure looked good though, I'll admit.

I hear LP records and valve radios are making a resurgence. I'm with Rosh.

Gentlemen,

Great to see you all again. I've been working on a long-term project (5+ years) in Theoretical Throws, and am finally coming up for air.  I'm somewhat saddened to see a relatively inactive BullBoard, while acknowledging my own contribution to this state.  Hope all is going well with your rock, your paper, and your scissors.

A project 5 years in the making sounds like an immense undertaking

It is very, very possible.

I've only just returned from my research quest in Tennessee and have so much I'd love to discuss with my RPS brothers and sisters.

Sitting on the back porch and thinking about RPS and what a great part of life it's been.  Seems like there's no way to post a new thread, but had some memories.  I don't always want to post about RPS on Facebook 'cause this was home for way longer.  A home's still a place you go back to every once in a while, so here goes.

My favorite RPS memories:

1:  Finding out that this community existed via Rolling Stone, and having the privilege to speak with people I'd only read about.

2:  Going to a WorldRPS event at a car dealership in some random Michigan town not too far from me.  Going through the back door to watch players duke it out in a weird back room like the time Wayne opens the door to flame-throwing spies in Wayne's World.  Not even competing, just there to support.

3:  The World RPS tourney!!!  Toronto with Master Rosh, Custardchuk, the Walker Bros....  so many more!!  So effing awesome (Yes I lost to Yanis in Street RPS but I did have a higher win % against him....  :) )

4:  Learning how to play Korean Gai Bai Bo with my feet at a bar!!  Ha!!

5:  Playing Jan Ken Pon against my friends on a train in Japan!!  Learning a variation of the game that I no longer remember. 

6:  Finding the World RPS handbook in the library when I was teaching high school.  Getting the kids excited about something bigger.

7:  Winning RPS matches against coworkers to get out of horrible days.  "You do know I'm in the World RPS Society right" :)

8:  Telling my dad about this group and playing against him.

9:  Hearing incredible stories about the RPS members in the media.

10:  People reading this.  Wow!  Thank you :)

R Cohrs, fantastic to see some activity from your good self on this almighty discussion board for the greatest of sports. I share your concerns about the current inactivity of the Bullboard, although I would urge you not to despair - there is no doubt in my mind that the once-great WRPSS will return, with a vengeance, to its former glory. Certain well-known figures in the scene are machinating and ruminating, so hopefully we hear some news within the next two planetary orbits. You and I are, of course, available to support and spread the word, when it is needed. In the interim, I too hope some more functionality of the Bullboard returns. Maybe Jef can help.

Your memories of happy times are inspired. The key points that shine through are that RPS has helped you make friends, transcend cultural barriers, and secure victory in your personal life. What positive contributions these are to the world. You were lucky enough to attend a World Championship; I only managed to make it to the Roshambo Winery tournament in its heyday (still extremely fun, and an important international destination on the global Professional circuit). This, along with competing in the Tasmanian State Championships and hanging out with Rosh in Washington, are some of my fondest memories.

Hold your WRPSS membership card up with pride; it is a sign of your commitment to decision-making, and to the world's most incredible strategy game.

RPS will rise like a phoenix from the flames. I look forward to joining you by the fireside when it does.

Hi r.cohrs & franklin, good to see you are still posting!
Perhaps I could add a fond memory to your lists.
R.Cohrs was the first winner of on line SPROCK game. Successfully claiming the 10gbp prize fund & champion title to start the wall of fame.
Franklint was instrumental in making it a successful game taking on the role of SPROCK Game Master.

Thanks to you both there was a live follow up in Leeds uk where it was played at a LURPS tournament.
Happy day's!
Ps I c the 10th Uk RPS Championship is on in London Nov 19th.
The game go's on so bull board life may not always be a memory!!!
Happy returns
Max
