Econ 171 Spring 2010 In-class game: variant of BoS (w/ incomplete information) Consider a variant of BoS in which Player 1 is unsure whether Player 2 wants to go out with her or avoid her, and thinks that these two possibilities are equally likely. We could imagine that this assessment comes from Player 1’s experience: half of the time she is involved in this situation she faces a player who wants to go out with her and half of the time she faces someone who wants to avoid her. As in the standard game, Player 2 knows Player 1’s preferences. So Player 1 thinks that with probability 1 / 2 she is playing the game on the left of Figure 1 and with probability 1 / 2 she is playing the game on the right. O B O 2 , 1 0 , 0 B 0 , 0 1 , 2 2 wishes to meet O B O 2 , 0 0 , 2 B 0 , 1 1 , 0 2 wishes to avoid Figure 1: Variant of BoS with incomplete information. Player 1 is unsure whether 2 wants to meet her or avoid her, thinking each possibility equally likely. Player 2 knows which is the case.
