Japanese children play a version of paper-rock-scissors called 'jan ken pon'. 'jan, ken, pon' is chanted and the hands are thrown as tradition dictates. If there is a tie, a second round begins to the chant of 'aiko denshou' and the hands are thrown again. Traditionally, the loser of jan ken pon gets hit on the head with a fan, but in the case of Scud Hammer the fan has been replaced by a hammer and the object is to knock your opponent out with it.
