Skittles is promoting it’s new ‘Originals’ packs, which feature a Green Apple flavor to replace the classic Lime, with an online game created by Catapult RPM. ‘Rock Paper Skittles‘ is a digital version of the simple ‘rock, paper, scissors’ game.

It uses image recognition technology to enable players to hold up a flavor from a pack of Skittles in front of their webcam. The color is then recognized and the player is pitted against a random opponent to see if they can defeat them.

Play Rock, Paper, Skittles Against Opponents Using A Webcam

Certain flavors beat others, for example green beats purple and red, while red beats orange and purple. There is a handy table to show all of the flavors and what they beat. Those without a webcam or a pack of Skittles can choose a flavor by clicking on their selection on the site.

You can play twelve games a day and each win sees the player entered into a prize draw to win $50,000, a championship belt that lights up and dispenses Skittles, a home tournament kit, or coupons for packs of Skittles.
