Begin with the Prime – 1962

‹ Return to Begin with the Prime – 1962

This image shows great depth despite its apparent simplicity. On an overt level, it serves to remind players to prime before playing, but, as is typical in World RPS Society promotional art, a more subtle and important message is also communicated. The concentration on the player’s face demonstrates that RPS is much more of a mental game than a physical one. Once this is understood, the words take on the much deeper meaning that, on a strategic level, the game is won or lost prior to the final prime being delivered.

The World RPS Society name has also been specifically placed above the city in the background as a subtle reminder that its influence and governance rests above players and the game itself.
