  1. Games of chance will be related to games of physical skill (195-196).Chick, Garry - Games in culture revisited: a replication and extension of roberts, arth, an..., 1998 - 2 Variables

    This study replicates the study of games conducted by Roberts, Arth and Bush (1959) using new data. Findings support the results of the original study, suggesting that games of strategy are related to social complexity and games of chance are related to games of physical skill.

  2. "There . . . appears to be a relationship between the presence or absence of games of chance and the number of games of physical skill. Societies having 5 or more games of physical skill frequently have games of chance" (604)Roberts, John M. - Games in culture, 1959 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationships between game types (physical, strategy, and chance) and social, religious, and geographic variables. Hypotheses are supported.

  3. "There was also a relationship between geographical location and the number of games of physical skill in a society. . . . Tribes living within 20 degrees latitude of the equator [tend to have] fewer than 5 games of physical skill" (604)Roberts, John M. - Games in culture, 1959 - 2 Variables

    This article examines the relationships between game types (physical, strategy, and chance) and social, religious, and geographic variables. Hypotheses are supported.

  4. "Societies with games of physical skill and games of chance tend to have a variable rather than constant supply of food resources, intercommunity food for trade, storage of food, and land transport by animals or vehicles rather than humans" (302)Barry III, Herbert - Infant socialization and games of chance, 1972 - 5 Variables

    This paper explores the relationship between games of chance and various aspects of infant socialization, as well as subsistence economy and social organization. Several significant associations were found between these variables.

  5. ". . . the game-type combination scale is positively associated with . . . indicators of cultural complexity . . ." (7)Roberts, John M. - Inculcated traits and game-type combinations: a cross-cultural view, 1976 - 2 Variables

    This study relates the type of games present in a society to the level of cultural complexity. Authors use a "game-type combination scale" that categorizes societies as having: 1) games of physical skill only; 2) games of physical skill and games of chance; and 3) games of physical skill, games of chance, and games of strategy. Results show a relationship between the game-type combination scale and indicators of cultural complexity.

  6. ". . . .in customs of food sharing with the aged there has been no significant difference in the treatment accorded to aged men and women (34)Simmons, Leo W. - The role of the aged in primitive society, 1945 - 5 Variables

  7. The aged of either sex, with some preference for males, have regularly been in demand as sources of information and experience, especially where no better means of preservation and transmission of knowledge is available. They are particularly active as priests and shamans. Variables such as climate, residence, stage of maintenance and family system exercise no marked influence on these special prerogatives of the aged (175)Simmons, Leo W. - The role of the aged in primitive society, 1945 - 5 Variables

    Explores 109 traits relating primarily to physical habitat, economy, political and social organization, and religion, to see how they relate to the role and treatment of the aged. General patterns were sought. Numerous ethnographic examples are given.

  10. "Statistically, analysis reveals that the practice [killing the aged] has been most prevalent where the climate has been severe, where residence has been impermanent, and the food supply irregular; it has also been observed . . . among collectors, hunters, herders, and fishers" (240)Simmons, Leo W. - The role of the aged in primitive society, 1945 - 5 Variables
