Play the game at…

How did your giving strategy evolve during the game? What was your goal in the first exchange versus the latter exchanges? After winning the game (once you have become a Big Person!), what do you think about reciprocity? What kind of society would generalized reciprocity produce? What sort of giving do you see in the !Kung society? Finally, compare ‘Big Person’/generalized reciprocity to exchanges in your own life: discuss cases in your own life in which you have engaged in generalized, balanced, and negative reciprocity.
