A Web Gaming Facility for Research and Teaching

Martin Shubik

No 1860, Cowles Foundation Discussion Papers from Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, Yale University

Abstract: This essay considers the potential for utilizing web games for research and teaching. It discusses a specific gaming facility that has been constructed and utilized. The gaming facility can be made available for use for those interested in utilizing it for teaching and/or research purposes. The goal is to have this facility be of use for both single play and repeated matrix games. Much of the discussion here is aimed at single play games as a desirable benchmark preliminary to the study of repeated games. Properties of the one stage games are discussed and instructions for the use of the system are supplied. Extensions to multistage games and incomplete information are noted.
