Quandary

The Quandary game provides a framework for how to approach ethical decision-making without telling players what to think. Quandary presents engaging situations where players must make difficult decisions when there are no clear right or wrong answers but significant consequences.  Through interactions with other settlers in the colony, players must consider facts, opinions and solutions, just like in real life.  The skills players develop while playing Quandary – such as critical thinking, perspective-taking and decision-making – will help them recognize ethical issues and deal with challenging situations in their own lives.
