Of course in real life, the game is played over multiple rounds and the game show is too. So what happens when they can’t cooperate together and we get to the final round? The punchline is around the 20 second mark lol.
I’ve used the Game Theory (as opposed to Game… er… theories) of Prisoners Dilemma as a framework for understanding husband and wifely interactions. Most particularly as to how the Nice Guy approach can lead to ultimate failure.
Then I spotted a video of this game show on Eve’s Library that has a final round of Prisoners Dilemma. For visual learners it may be very helpful.
I admit that digging around on YouTube it seems that there were an awful lot of female contestants plugging the Steal option at the end. I suspect that the more dramatic ones made the the uploading to YouTube though.
But a final one… Not All Women Are Like That? Or Fear The Vaginas With The Teeth?
