Oẳn tù tì is the Vietnamese version of "Rock, Paper, Scissors", a game used to decide something between two people, such as who goes first in a game, etc.

Game Instructions

Two players each hide one hand behind their back. Then they say the line together at the same time, "Oẳn tù tì!". On "tì" they put their hands out at exactly the same time in one of the three signs, "Rock", "Paper" or "Scissors".

Here's how to make each sign:

- Oẳn (Rock): Make a fist.
- Tù (Paper): Put out a flat hand horizontal to the ground.
- Tì (Scissors): Put out the index and middle finger imitating scissors.

Here's how you determine who won the round depending upon which symbol each kid put out:

- Oẳn (Rock) beats tì (Scissors - imagine a rock breaking the scissors).
- Tì (Scissors) beats Tù (Paper - imagine the scissors cutting the paper).
- Tù (Paper) beats Oẳn (Rock - imagine a piece of paper covering a rock).

If both kids chose the same symbol, they have to replay the round.

Whoever wins the round is the winner of the game. Sometimes kids will decide that the winner is whoever wins 2 out of 3 rounds.
