Games of Strategy

  • Rüdeger Baumann


In this chapter we are going to explore games that all have certain similarities:
  1. a)

    They are contests between two players.

  2. b)

    They terminate after a finite number of moves.

  3. c)

    There are no elements of chance involved (no dice are used or cards shuffled) . The result is that the game is determined solely by the players’ decisions.

  4. d)

    Both players can freely observe each other’s moves and evaluate the changes that these make in the game.
