The study presents experimental evidence of the impact of playing a common property resource (CPR) game on real life cooperation. The CPR game was framed as a pest management activity, the effectiveness of which depends on the decisions of others. Playing the game increases participation in all collective activities. The economic impact of those activities is important, leading to losses that are approximately 22 per cent lower than in the control group.
