Our monthly blog
Each month, we muse about some aspect of negotiation, gamification or philanthropy and its effect on our work and world. Comments welcome!
If you want to take part in the discussion, you are kindly invited to join our group 'Gamification and Negotiation' on LinkedIn.

Context is everything. In the negotiation world, we call it framing.
Rational Games is a social business: we exist to lend our support to projects and organizations that make creative use of games and play to resolve conflict. So this month’s blog focuses on that side of what we do.
This month Rational Games has been, like so many other training providers, engrossed in a valiant effort to see how much of our traditional training content can be moved online and offered digitally.
This month, please allow me to do a more personal blog, on a topic that is on everyone’s mind all over the globe. But what does it have to do with negotiation?
The best negotiators focus on interests. They listen and ask questions.
This month Rational Games puts the spotlight on our signature negotiation game: Red and Blue.
“Fortiter in re, suaviter in modo”
This month, Rational Games is proud to present its latest grantee: the KICK on Ice project (KOI) in Berlin.
The current stand-off in trade negotiations between the U.S. and China provides an instructive lesson for what happens when tit-for-tat slaps and punches become a proxy for true conflict resolution.
This month I am proud to present our newest RGI grantee: the Republic of Urbana project started by the Munich based SchlaU-Schule for unaccompanied refugees from all over the world, especially Afghanistan, Eritrea, Somalia, Iraq and Syria.
