Rock Paper Scissors Spock Lizard

In answer to the never-asked-often-enough question: "is there anything beyond Rock-Scissors-Paper?", software professional and player-at-large Samuel John Kass says: "but of course." Hence, it is with something like significant joy that I herewith announce the arrival of: Rock, Scissors, Paper, Spock, Lizard. Kass explains:

"This game was invented because it seems like when you know someone well enough, 75-80% of any Rock-Paper-Scissors games you play with that person end up in a tie. Well, here is a slight variation that reduces that probability." It goes like this:

Scissors cuts Paper
Paper covers Rock
Rock crushes Lizard
Lizard poisons Spock
Spock smashes Scissors
Scissors decapitates Lizard
Lizard eats Paper
Paper disproves Spock
Spock vaporizes Rock
and Rock, as we all know and often wonder about, breaks Scissors.
