The Dollar Auction

Date: Time: 20:30 Location: Cube 218

SERIOUS GAME - How does the temptation of money affects our behavior? Are you able to take a loss or do you always want to win, no matter what (language: English)?

Temptation and money: a match made in heaven. But how does this temptation influence our behavior? During two short games, you will learn about the Escalation of Commitment principle and the Winner-takes-all principle. Do you have the courage to admit your loss and risk losing face? Or do you always want to win, no matter what? After the games, Hans van Dijk, Remco Mannak and Marino van Zelst will tell us what this teaches us on behavior. Please note that during the games, we will play with real money. This money will be donated to a charity.
