A strategy game is mainly based on decision makingskills. There are many strategy games found and one thing they have in common is that they all require internal decision style thinking. The Greek word “strategy” comes from the word meaning generalship. Some examples of strategy games would be tictac tow, chess etc. Game strategies are largely related to math because even though they don’t require a person to solve math problems like in mathematical puzzles, but they require the person to think mathematically. Basic Mathematical Game Strategies Basic strategy games are particularly suitable as starting points of investigations. Players instinctively to try to discover a winning strategy and usually the best way to do this is to analyses the outcomes for series of moves, that usually occur when a person can relate something they learned to something they’re trying to do. For example solve the ancient game known as NIM. NIM is a mathematical game of strategy, in which two players take turns removing objects from distinct piles. On
each turn, a player must remove at least one object and may remove any numbering of
the particular object they have chosen.
Abstract Strategy
Another type of strategy games is under the category of Abstract strategy
games. Abstract strategy game is a game that depends on luck, and doesn’t have a
theme to rely on understanding the rules. Almost all abstract strategy games will

conform to the strictest definition of a game board, card, or title game in which there
is no hidden information any nondeterministic elements. Some examples of abstract
strategy games are chess, checkers. There is an unbreakable bond between the
relationships in games such as puzzles, every board position presents the player with
the way they think and the way they want to take their next move. Which also goes...

I. Case study: GameTheory Applied to the Movie Business
In the movie business, one of the trickiest decisions producers face is what type of movie to make. Suppose there are 2 movie studios and that their producers are trying to decide whether to make an Action Adventure (AA) or Romantic Comedy (RC) movie. Suppose each of the studios does not know what type of...
...punish the defectors. Let us study these philosophies in comparison with Prisoners Dilemma & TitForTat strategy in Gametheory.
Game theorists, like gamblers and children, can become addicted to iterated games. Their classic example is the Prisoner’s Dilemma, whose diabolical simplicity has given rise to thousands of scientific publications. Two players are engaged in the game. They have to choose between two...
...GameTheory
The game begins with a case that occurred on two prisoners. Both prisoners were suspected criminals and their work. Both prisoners were placed in a different room, then to be given the question of whether it is true they are committing a crime or not. Option given is: If the prisoner A prisoner confessed while B does not confess, then A will be free, while B will get a 6 month sentence. If they plead not guilty, then it will get a 1...

1. Suppose Penguin and Joker are the only two firms in the death ray market. Each firm is considering two possible pricing strategies – either P = $700 or
P = $1500 – for their goods. The following payoff matrix gives the profit outcomes (in $m).

...group of interacting decision makers (Nash equilibrium).
Now that we have realized that we have to move in a somewhat similar direction to the economists, maybe we should consult the experts of the gametheory at this point. In the 1980’s Axelrod and Hamilton worked on a famous problem in the gametheory, the Prisoner’s Dilemma, exactly because it deals with this problem. The rational pursuit of individual selfinterest drives...
