In modern day United States, Roshambo or Rochambeau is when two or more guys kick, punch, squeeze, or knee each other in the groin to win something (an object, money, bets, etc..) untill one of them gives up or falls down. The last one standing wins. This is a modern American twist on the game.

It is also a very old word of Egyptian origin for the child game "Paper, Sissors, Rock".

In the TV series South Park, Cartman and his friends play the game "I'll Rochambeau you for it", by kicking the opponent in the crotch. The first one to fall over loses the game. This of course means the first person to go is usually the winner. This is a way of choosing, and it's called Rochambeau.

Origin: American revolutionary war.
After: Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur,
comte de Rochambeau (1725-1807).
As a lieutenant general, comte de Rochambeau commanded the French expeditionary army sent to help the American Revolution during 1780 to 1782. His skillful leadership and professional wisdom were vital to the American-French allied victory at Yorktown in September 1781.
Rochambeau was so skilled at kicking the British's balls in battle, that his victories were called "Rochambeau's".
His name, in corrupted spelling, became slang for any number of contests or confrontation resolved by competitive nut-kicking.
Hey! I'll roshambo (Rochambeau) you for the last beer!
( etiquette usually dictates that the challenged gets first kick .. unless he's an idiot).

A contest in which two guys give each other repeated kicks to their nuts.
It is the Challenge of all challenges, and the Supreme test of wills. Real men only need apply.

Rock paper scissors is first held to see who kicks first.

The first competitor to receive the THIRD kick may then call out for the Russian Gas Pedal. However, if his opponent can make it past 60 seconds of intense pain, then he may call for it right back!

Also note exceptions: Professional Roshambo, Third party Roshambo and Standard Roshambo
Tim and me both liked Jenny and really wanted to impress her. Before she came over we silently agreed to place a bet for $100 on a game of Roshambo just to impress her.

After the third kick I called out for The Russian Gas pedal and afetr 45 seconds Tim gave up, whimpering like a little girl. I won the Roshambo contest and brought Jenny out later that night. She was amazed at my tolerance for pain!

Those without an social interaction other then a TV believe it is the process of kicking someone in the nuts, due to some episodes of South Park, in which Cartman tricks people into getting kicked in the nuts. The people who believe this act embodies the phrase are not only sadly mistaken, but are naive and childish to have believed a cartoon above life experience.
When walking out to a car before a going somewhere, one might shout: "Shot gun! No rank, no ro, no nothing." Thus designating that neither seniority, nor 'ro sham bo', nor anything else can squander their claim to the front passenger seat.
