Quandary promotes ethical thinking and reasoning through a three-episode story that follows the development of a futuristic space colony on a new planet. As the captain of the colony, players have the final say in the multifaceted problems that residents bring up. Once presented with an issue, they must first sort facts from opinion and evaluate stakeholder arguments on the available solutions.
By working through each scenario, players improve their critical thinking, understanding others’ perspectives, and decision-making skills. Players receive more points as they uncover more relevant information while avoiding illogical jumps in arguments. Each episode, designed for players ages 8 through 14, takes about 10 to 30 minutes to complete.
The Quandary website contains guides for both teachers and parents.
