A paper stone scissors game to decipher

This is a sketch I drew back in 2008 for the movie "Sourdough" and even though I am currently working on something different, I feel like sharing it tonite.

This sketch shows a variation of the paper stone scissors hand game based on the five elements and Taoist Cycle of Life. Fire beats Metal which beats Wood which beats Earth which beats Water which beats Fire and so on. I won't tell you what hand sign belongs to which element because it's some kind of secret. This special hand game is used by some characters of the movie in order to communicate covertly.
