Wellington held its second annual Rock Paper Scissors Championship at The Residence bar this week, with winner Zoe Rivera beating 99 fellow contestants and taking home a grand prize of $1000.
The championship was held over the course of four rounds at $5 per entry, complete with a referee - wearing a black and white striped shirt - watching for illegal moves as contestants took turns heading the stage.
