reversal of normal rules in the game of scissors, paper, stone

It’s time this game had a makeover with new rules which are the exact opposite of the existing ones:

Paper beats scissors because it's sand paper and it wrecks the blades.
Stone beats paper because it's flint and it tears the paper apart, even sand paper.
Scissors beats stone because they fracture the brittle flint on impact.

       [+] Makes about as much sense as the original rules.

       A different kind of opposite would be blob, blob, blob. Blob merges with blob etc. so no-one would ever win and no decisions could be taken.

       There's also the combined "entropy" version where both contestants always lose.   

       Scissors cut paper, but become blunted and ruined.   

       Paper wraps rock, but is torn by the sharp edges.   

       Rock blunts scissors, but is fractured by the blades.   

       Lose lose

       Zen Paper-Scissors-Stone: You shouldn't say that one thing 'beats' another because, really, these things are all the same at one level. What you see as differences and what you see as conflict are illusory, mmkay?

       [+] Best done after playing somebody. "You got paper, I got stone, I win because it's flint and it tears your paper."   

       And tears and tears needs different spelling.

       In today's alternative reality, everything is a loser's game.

       What about the massive version with dozens of options?
