Christie's auction house has won a fat prize in a game of rock-paper-scissors.
The Japanese owner of four expensive paintings says he turned to the playground game as a tie-breaker when he couldn't decide on Christie's or Sotheby's to sell the artwork.
Christie's won by choosing scissors, defeating Sotheby's paper.
The paintings went for $17.8 million in Wednesday’s auction. The auction house hasn't said the exact commission, but it is well over a $1 million on the most expensive painting alone.
The World Rock-Paper-Scissors Society called the contest the RPS Match of the Century.
