Table 1 Examples of cards

From: A card game for the treatment of delusional ideas: A naturalistic pilot trial

A non-psychotic and non-emotional situation card:
Michael sets two bags of different sizes on each side of a scale.
The big bag has the same weight as the small bag.
Michael is surprised since the two bags are supposed to be filled with cotton.
He thinks that the small bag contains a stone.
A psychotic situation card:
Michael is watching his favorite show on television.
When the show host appears, Michael is so pleased that he bursts out laughing.
The show host and another participant in the show start laughing at the same time.
Michael tells himself: "My joy is catching them".
