What happens when you take a classic game [in this case Rock, Paper, Scissors] and give it a bit of a revamp? We decided to find out…

[The Story So Far: Every Wednesday at 12 noon South African time [6am EDT] an inspired and growing number of brilliant, creative and absolutely fun people from all around the world take part in what is called a Hashtag game. @AFrikkinHashtag [say it out loud] is South Africa’s #1 Hashtag game and is always a lot of fun. The F.L.O.P. [or Fish List Of Prizeworthyness] is the collection of some of the best tweets from each week’s game and is what all seriously comedic Hashtaggers aspire to…]

So we sent out an invite as per usual and then i gave a few examples, even breaking my avoid-Trump-tweets rule cos i couldn’t resist this one:

And then we sat back and waited to see what the Twitterer would drag in and all of you showed up with some great and creative suggestions making it on to this week’s:


Bazza was the first to go THERE:

While Patrick showed us how it is done:

V nailed this chocolate-flavoured game:

Although John might beg to differ:

Daniel scored some carefully crafted pun points:

Rob got creative:

Cosy captured it:

OffThe3Cuff gave a different perspective:

And Bannon took it to the next level:

While John has clearly had too much time on his hands, er hair:

or maybe knot? J.C. had some other ideas:

Patch nailed it:

Kevin turned the pages:

Rob weaved this one together:

That one guy was on the money:

While K Dawg’s positive was immediately trounced by Ol Whatshisname:

OffTh3Cuff sung a different tune:

While Cherie had her own thoughts on that:

X Mill is looking ahead:

This one from John is almost poetic:

Chardonnay was in her elements:

While Big Shot Prof was bringing the science:

Sean gave the classic a great bit of a twist, or slice, or something:

While Travis was channeling his inner batchelor:

Mark made this old man so happy with this obscurest of references:

While Grey Jen was in her own world:

Bazza is clearly a purist:

Mark ended up feeling like this might be a draw:

Richards is clever and all, but in my opinion everything beats Bublé:

While Jessica described the end of a particularly bad choiced first date:

Sanjay has a game to Marvel at:

Bazza named that which must not be names but also should be cos STOPPIT:

So wow, some really great updated versions of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Not too many people got it completely right in terms of sharing hierarchies rather than full circles, but the entries were so fun and creative that we decided to turn a blind eye on that and be extra impressed with those who managed the circle.

And as always a few stood out from the rest and make it on to this week’s Top Tweets Top Tweets which we like to call:


[5] Nirmal dropped a tweet right in the wake of the Australian cricket scandal which means sandpaper will beat ball which will beat test career or something like that #TooSoon?:

[4] While Rishabh brought a classic Grandma Police complaint:

[3] Andre brought out the Bride:

[2] John gets a place here courtesy of both a great tweet and for using the word ‘ocelot’ in a sentence:

[1] But the winner had to be this classic truth-containing caffeine-enhanced tweet making Kevin this week’s TOP F.L.O.P.:

As always, you made the game amazing and please continue to do so as we have another one coming this Wednesday at 12 noon SA time or 6am EDT – hope to see you there…
