Abstract

A discussion of the relationship between the theory of games and experimental gaming is presented. This includes comments on games of indefinite length and lack of knowledge concerning the rules. Six simple games are constructed and examined in the light of four different solution concepts. These games were used in an experiment with a class of Yale seniors as the subjects. The results of these experiments are discussed. They appear to lend weight to the non-cooperative equilibrium concept of solution.
