Here’s another great example of how an important biological concept (sexual selection) can be tranferred in a simple way using a game.
Player 1 plays a male riflebird that calls and displays to a female. Player 2 plays a female that judges the male. Whether or not Player 1 gets to mate will depend on how impressed Player 2 is with the dance. Nice!
The game can be played online here and here’s a video of the bird in real life — Pretty close!
