Smiling and humor provide us with a large variety of cultural challenges. What humors us, causes us to smile and laugh, may create confusion and even pain in other places and contexts. The divesiSMILES game has been created to generate discussion and understanding about these delicate subjects as well as inform players of dimensions and practices of humor in a variety of different cultures including some do’s and taboos.
