Rock Paper Scissors Tournament at the Arizona State Capitol

  1. Updates


Get ready to play in a Rock Paper Scissors Tournament at a free, live event at the Arizona State Capitol on Monday, May 16th from 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Rose Garden, 1700 W Washington St. Phoenix, AX 85007. When you play in this tournament, you’ll be joining Playworks community members–kids and adults–for both the joy of the game as well as the chance to break the world record for the largest Rock Paper Scissors game ever played. The record is currently 10,033 participants. If we break the world record, the Playworks tournament winner’s name will be included in the Guinness Book of World Records!

Rock Paper Scissors is an important game in our Playworks community. It is both a fun activity and a key conflict resolution skill that kids learn and practice on Playworks playgrounds. Kids attribute the game to enabling them to communicate, solve problems independently, and keep the games they play going. That’s why we want over 10,000 people participating in multiple tournaments to role model safe and healthy play.

Monday, May 16, 2022 from 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Rose Garden, 1700 W Washington St. Phoenix, AZ 85007.
