Infinite Sequential Games with Perfect but Incomplete Information


  • Itai Arieli
  • Yehuda (John) Levy


Infinite sequential games, in which Nature chooses a Borel winning set and reveals it to one of the players, do not necessarily have a value if Nature has 3 or more choices. The value does exist if Nature has 2 choices. The value also does not necessarily exist if Nature chooses from 2 Borel payoff functions. Similarly, if Player 1 chooses the Borel winning set and does not reveal his selection to Player 2, then the game does not necessarily have a value if there are 3 or more choices; it does have a value if there are only 2 choices. If Player 1 chooses from 2 Borel payoff functions and does not reveal his choice, the game need not have a value either.
