Actually an improvement of a talk I gave almost 3 yrs ago: http://www.slideshare.net/pascalvanhecke/bitcoin-how-does-it-work-and-why-did-it-become-a-hype
I concentrated on a role playing game where participants acted like nodes in the (early) Bitcoin network, and how the protocol is designed in that way that if you try to cheat, you get excluded from the network. On the other hand, if enough participants form a conspiracy, or there is lack of connectivity, you get harmful effects such as the 51% attack or a blockchain fork.
