Prisoners’ dilemma

Negotiation game in which both players have to choose either to cooperate or to defeat, secretly.  The two players will make a decision in secret, so the situations and the outcomes will be the following:

  • Cooperate x Cooperate = Win-win situation a.k.a. positive outcomes for both.
  • Cooperate x Defeat = Best outcome for the one who defeated; zero positive outcome for the one who decided to cooperate.
  • Defeat x Defeat = Zero outcome for both.

Be careful when playing it… it can get outrageous dimensions!
