Purpose: To mimic the real-life obstacles people face in their quest to move up in society.
Overview: A game in which a low-mobility, three-tiered society is built through the distribution of wealth. Once established, the group with the most wealth is given the power to make the rules for the game. Almost without exception, they make rules which secure and enhance their position of power. The other two groups generally consider these rules.
When the frustration and conflict reaches a certain level, the director ends the game and the experience is analyzed and discussed.
Number of Participants:
12-35 (25-30 is optimal) participants broken into 3 teams.
