Irrational Game is a fun Party Game invented by Bestselling Author and Duke Professor Dan Ariely. It includes 105 thought-provoking questions backed up by scientific research. Irrational Game sparks great discussions that can change the way players make real-life decisions.
How well can YOU predict human nature? Human nature is a funny thing, so it’s no surprise that we’re not always rational. But are we ever rational? In this thought-provoking, fun, and engaging game, players second-guess human nature by predicting decisions people will make. The answers are backed up by research, and each card explains why we act the way we do. But the best part is the discussions it sparks . . . and the way players can use insights from the game to understand how they make decisions, and to make better decisions that will enrich their lives. And the answers to the above questions are: “When they spent money on other people (although they thought they would be happier by spending money on themselves),”“They put in more effort when they pulled as individuals,” and “Ten times more likely when there were just 6 flavors.”
