Part 1 Instructions - Page 1 of 4

  • Rounds

    This part of the experiment, part 1 of 2, consists of 1 round.

  • Players

    The experiment is for 2 players, called the Row player and the Column player. You will stay in the same role throughout this part of the experiment.

  • Matching

    You will be matched with another person selected at random from the other participants.

  • Payoffs

    Your payoff in each round is determined by 3 things: (1) your choice; (2) the other player's choice; (3) the computer's random choice of payoff table.

  • Choices

    The Row player chooses between a Top and a Bottom row, whereas the Column player chooses between a Left and a Right column. It is the intersection of the chosen row and column in the payoff table that determines both players' payoffs. Note that neither player is told about the other player's choice until both players have made their respective choices.
