If this research is for your own good or to explain the results to someone at a later time, I think it is a great idea. Once it becomes about judging the participants or trying to sway their beliefs, I think you have a problem.

Yes, it's to get them thinking. Nothing aggressive.

Can I offer a techie tip?

Yup. Thumbsup

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Enjoy the journey.

It won't be long before you'll be giving tips to others.

I was wondering if there was a non-threatening way of highlighting to believers how their god is in fact, themselves.

Dunno about a game, but think I could come up with a non-threatening Socratic dialog. ...

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Cheers
Honesty and truth are a big one for me- that's what led me to where I am. I suppose those would fit underneath fairness/cheating, though not sure?
