Playing "Rock Paper Scissors" in Joy Town

Players can challenge each other to Rock Paper Scissor matches in Joy Town.

Matches are played 1-on-1 according to the classic "rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock" rules.


▼ How to Start a Match

First, you need to make your way on over to one of Joy Town's "Rock Paper Scissors Showdown Stages".

These "Stages" are located towards your right-hand side when you warp into Joy Town facing in direction of The Fountain.

As shown in the image below, each Stage has a special platform and docks.

Each Showdown Stage has two player docks: one on the left and one on the right. When you select a dock, you'll be transported up onto the left or right side (depending on which dock you selected) of the Stage's upper platform.

If you change your mind or tapped a dock by mistake, don't worry! While on the upper platform, you can tap the "Cancel" button in the upper left of the screen to leave the platform.

Note: While in standby mode while on the platform, you will be unable to move your nOn, take Snaps, send world invites to other players, respawn, or return to the Home screen. You will first need to exit the Showdown Stage to perform those actions.

Ready-up Phase

Once 2 players have joined the Stage, there is brief 5-second "ready-up" period before the match begins.

During this phase, players may still choose to cancel the match and leave the platform. (So even if you entered the Stage accidently, you can still duck out before the match starts by tapping the "Cancel" button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.)

Otherwise, the match will begin after the ready-up phase has ended.

Rock, Paper, Scissors—Shoot!

After the ready-up phase, the match will begin following the "Start!" signal.
You have 5 seconds to make your choice: rock, paper, or scissors.

But fear not! You're not immediately locked into your choice!
That's right—as long as the counter hasn't reached 0 yet, you can change your selection as many times as you want.

That's not all! Your opponent's selection will be displayed on the Stage board for the first 3 seconds of this phase as well. (Which means, of course, they'll be able to see your choice for the first 3 seconds too.)

You can use this info to guess which hand your opponent will throw, or even to try tricking the other side. Use this time to strategize your way to victory!


Finally, once the countdown has ended, both players' choices will be set, and the players will enter the showdown phase. (It is not possible to skip the showdown animation, and players will be unable to move or leave the platform at this time.)

The results of the match (i.e. WIN or LOSE) will be displayed on the Stage board after the showdown.


Match Results

As explained above, the match results will be displayed at the conclusion of the showdown.

Regardless of whether your match ended in a win, loss, or tie, a rematch will automatically begin 3 seconds after the results of the previous match. And, at this point in time, there is no limit on the number of rematches you can play.

If you don't want a rematch, tap the "Resign" button before the counter reaches 0 to cancel the rematch and leave the platform.

・ About Win Rewards
Did you know that you can also earn a little Gold (up to 10 times a day) when you win a Rock Paper Scissors match?

Currently, you'll get 30 Gold for each win. However, after 10 wins, no further Gold will be awarded until the day resets at 5:00 a.m. (UTC). You will still be able to play as many matches as you like, though.
*Win reward settings are subject to change without notice.

What Happens When Your Opponent Bails Mid-Match?

If a player disappears mid-match, due to network issues or other causes, the player remaining behind will automatically win the match.

That said, if an opponent disappears or disconnects after both players have already entered the showdown animation, then the match results will still be based on each side's selection (since the choices will have already been set). In this situation, only the remaining player's nOn will be visible, and the match results will be displayed in the usual way.
