The human urge to play is greater than the urge to fight.

Playful Negotiation for Serious People

As a social business, rational games invests time, talent and money in initiatives and individuals that make creative use of games and play to bring people together to build a more peaceful world. We measure our success by the amount of time and funding we invest in curating innovative initiatives that make a clear contribution to conflict resolution.
