  1. Games of strategy will be related to social complexity (195).Chick, Garry - Games in culture revisited: a replication and extension of roberts, arth, an..., 1998 - 3 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. "Games of physical skill [physical skill only or physical skill and strategy jointly] . . . show significant relationships with reward for achievement . . ." (174)Roberts, John M. - Child training and game involvement, 1962 - 2 Variables

    This study builds on a previous study of games by Roberts, Arth and Bush (1959) and offers a conflict interpretation of game involvement. Several significant relationships are observed between game type and child training variables.

  4. "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.

  6. "Tribes possessing games of strategy were found more likely to have high ratings on child-training procedures which involved rewarding children for being obedient, punishing for being disobedient, anxiety about nonperformance of obedience, conflict over obedience, and high frequency of obedient behaviors" (171-172)Roberts, John M. - Child training and game involvement, 1962 - 6 Variables

    This study builds on a previous study of games by Roberts, Arth and Bush (1959) and offers a conflict interpretation of game involvement. Several significant relationships are observed between game type and child training variables.

  7. "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.

  8. Warfare of all types (external, internal and overall) will be negatively related to proportion of noncombative sports and positively related to proportion of individual combative sports, team combative sports, and sham combats.Chick, Garry - Combative sport and warfare: a reappraisal of the spillover and catharsis hy..., 1997 - 4 Variables

    A replication of Sipes' (1973) study of the relationship between combative sport and warfare using new codes and a new sample. Although many of the results are weaker than found by Sipes previously, they are still consistent with the culture pattern model as compared with the drive-discharge model.

  9. ". . . 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.

  10. "Games of chance occur where . . . outcome . . . in the life situation [is] uncertain, not easily controlled by either physical skill or strategy in areas of environmental setting, food production, social and political interaction, marriage, war and religion" (143)Roberts, John M. - Cross-cultural correlates of games of chance, 1966 - 6 Variables

    Authors investigate the cross-cultural correlates of games of chance. They advance a "conflict-enculturation" model to explain why individuals choose to engage in games of chance in particular (as opposed to games of strategy or physical skill). They suggest that games of chance are linked to cultures with antecedent conflict and/or feelings of powerlessness in the presence of uncertainty; both are psychological stressors whose effects may be assuaged by play with uncertainty models in the form of games of chance.
