RETURN OF THE ICECREAM MEN. A DISCRETE HOTELLING GAME Abstract: We consider a finite symmetric game in strategic form between two players which can be interpreted as a discrete variant of the Hotelling game in a one or two-dimensional space. As the analytical investigation of this game is tedious, we simulate with Maple and formulate some conjectures. In addition we present a short literature overview Classification-JEL: C72, R30 Keywords: discrete Hotelling game, Maple, Nash equilibrium
