  1. Games and enculturation: A cross-cultural analysis of cooperative goal structures in Austronesian gamesLeisterer-Peoples, Sarah M. - PLoS ONE, 2021 - 4 Hypotheses

    Using data on 25 ethnolinguistic groups in the Austronesian language family, this study asks: does cooperation in games vary with socio-ecological differences across cultural groups? The authors suggest that cultural groups that cooperate in subsistence, tend to have intergroup conflict and less intragroup conflict, and are less socially stratified are more likely to play cooperative games compared to other groups. While the results support the first three hypotheses, there is insufficient data to support the fourth. The authors conclude that games serve as training ground for group norms and values.
