    • Only five hand signs? Pfft, try a hundred and one.
      • If you care to add more, any odd number up to infinity can be made into an RPS variant.

  • Ladies and gentlemen: chess boxing.
  • There's a boardgame called For The Win where each player controls two Monkeys, two Zombies, two Pirates, two Aliens, and two Ninjas. Each piece has a special ability and you win by forming one of each into a group.
  • In the popular board game Small World, player-controlled factions are combinations of unique powers, one 'adjective' special ability and one 'noun' race. Vampire Elves, Were-Orcs, Seafaring Ghouls, Magic Giants, Flying Dwarves...
  • The entire premise of the game Smash Up! is combining cool things: the base game comes with Aliens, Robots, Pirates, Ninjas, Dinosaurs, Fey, Zombies and Wizards, which are then combined into decks such as "Ninja Dinosaurs", "Wizard Pirates" or "Zombie Robots"; expansions add things such as Steampunk and Bear Cavalry (AKA Russians).
