Jan Ken Pon - International House of Games
International house of games
The Language Resources Centre (LRC) invites you to come and join us in playing games as the Centre is transformed into an international house of games. Alec Redvers-Hill will lead each session. You will learn to play iconic games enjoyed by millions in China, Japan and Korea and, at the same time, be able to practice the relevant language.

Jan Ken Pon is the Japanese variety of the game ‘rock, paper, scissors’, but with a few added dimensions. In this game playing session, participants will learn the rules and words used to play Jan Ken Pon, as well as other ‘rock, paper, scissors’ variants from around the world. They will then play Jan Ken Pon using the Japanese language words and phrases learned in the initial presentation.
ALEC REDVERS-HILL is currently the Resources Officer at the LRC having joined King’s from New Zealand where he taught Japanese. He regularly supports the events offered by the Japan Foundation at the LRC and is an expert of Asian popular culture.
