Checkers, Connect Four, Battleship... Is it down to a blind gamble on luck, or maybe strategy? Success and failure are often separated just by an inch, or one number on the roll of dice. During the whole evening, you can watch these little battles unfold on the playing board, or even play yourself.

The Bet teaser week relates to an upcoming project on the subject of The Bet, which will be presented together with the Berliner Festspiele's Foreign Affairs festival. The Bet is a certain pattern of action that relates to belief, and is not causal but rather contingent. A game of chance and risk: even introducing probability calculation does not really change that decisions based on bets do not have any certainty. The week-long teaser during Relaunch invites visitors to take some risk, with a *black-jack* night and a board game evening. At the same time, the teaser also addresses our wish to protect ourselves from insecurity and prevent unknown situations: on the practical side with an insurance agent's lecture on the insurance mechanism, and from the mystical approach of trying to reading your future in a deck of cards.
