Event description

Description

How do you Rock, Paper, Scissors? Do you draw on the Nash Equilibrium and Game Theory or rely on conditional strategy? Is cracking RPS a math equation or is it all psychology? Perhaps there is a gender component to how we throw? Or does it just come down to pure randomness?

DigiBC's next event is in collaboration with Vancouver Social Games (VSG). It’s going to be an amazing night full of socializing and fun, along with an old-school, head-to-head competition of none other than… Rock, Paper, Scissors! If you have an exceptional strategy or secret game plan you want to put to the test, then come out and try your hand on February 6. This will also be a great opportunity for members of the creative technology sector (animation, VFX, video games, VR/AR/MR) to meet and get to know one other.

The event will be taking place at the fabulous ANZA Club (Vancouver’s favourite, one-of-a-kind social club and watering hole) located in the heart of Mount Pleasant, and the tournament will be hosted by Scott Patey and friends (aka Jolly Brain comedians). The weekly Rock, Paper, Corduroy they established back in 2011 at the Corduroy in Kitsilano has now turned into one of the city’s most epic events! Scott is a professional actor, improviser and host with over 15 years of experience under his belt.
