Talking Table Top Versus/Non-Cooperative Games
This episode of Talking Table Top has Trevor and Danny presenting their top 5 “versus” games. Versus Games are usually referred to as non-cooperative games.
In non-cooperative games there is a competition between individual players. All choices are decided by the players based on their own self-interest, presumably without sharing knowledge. There are two basic forms of non-cooperative games.
In the strategic form the payoff for a given player depends on the strategy of that player and all other participating players. The rules and all available strategies are assumed to be common knowledge. There are no unfair advantages or insider knowledge.
The prisoners dilemma format has two prisoners (convicted for committing a crime together). They are interrogated separately and have two obvious choices. They can either tell on the other or remain silent. There are different boundary conditions for each choice.
We hope you discovered a game in this list that interests you. As always, Keep Playing Games!
