Than Average

Than Average

A fun, insightful, sometimes surprising game to play. You answer one question at a time and all you have to do is gauge whether you’re above or below average. For example: Do you experience envy more than average? Afterwards you see what side everyone else has picked. Obviously, in a perfectly representative sample of people who assess themselves correctly, it should always be 50:50. So the real challenge in this game comes after each reveal: Why is this skewed?
