The purpose of the present study was to investigate the potential of a conditional discrimination procedure to alter children's preference of dice choice in game playing through the transformation of stimulus functions. Past research has demonstrated a transformation of stimulus functions under similar conditions using gambling tasks and adults (e.g., Zlomke & Dixon, 2006) and the present study attempted to extend this research. Seven children (ages 7--10) were exposed to a simulated board game with concurrently available dice differing only by color. Following initial exposure to the game, participants were trained via a conditional discrimination procedure to discriminate between two contextual cues representing the relational frames of more-than and less-than. Following the training procedure, participants were re-exposed to the simulated board game task. Six of the seven participants demonstrated an increased preference toward the die with the color that had been paired with more-than during the conditional discrimination training
