A game similar to rock paper scissors shoot. The game begins with both players having there hand in the pound position. One player (the charger) moves his fist towards the other player (The receiver). The charger wants to get the same hand motion either a pound or a high 5 while the receiver wants the opposite. Sudden death or first to 5 are the common scoring systems. Game was created because of those awkward times that you go to give some one a high 5 and they give you a pound back. Invented at WHRHS.
