The Deliberate module encourages participants to actively use debate and mediation skills to achieve common goals. @Stake relies on rapid-fire ideation, discussions facilitated through role-playing, experimentation with ideas, and collaboration among a diversity of stakeholders. Participants take on the role of stakeholders with a private agenda on a public issue. Participants take turns proposing solutions to issues, and arguing their points of view to the table’s Decider. The participant with the most points at the end of the game wins.
