|Play a non-zero-sum game where the best strategy for a given player is often one that increases the payoff to one's partner as well. The rules: on each turn of the game, you and your opponent must choose, without knowing the other's choice; following every turn of the game, you and your opponent will each receive a certain number of gold coins, the number depending for each of you on the choices made by both of you.|
