Games of Strategy

Third Edition


Avinash K. Dixit (Author, Princeton University), David H. Reiley, Jr. (Author, Google), Susan Skeath (Author, Wellesley College)


Engaging and highly readable, Games of Strategy is a clear and comprehensive introduction to the study of game theory.

The third edition uses resonant, real-world examples to simplify complex theoretical ideas, helping students see the value of strategic thinking in a variety of situations.


End-of-chapter exercises—now with solutions

New author David Reiley has increased and improved the end-of-chapter exercises, half of which have worked-out solutions available online. Solutions to the unsolved sets are reserved for instructors.

Revisions and additions

The Third Edition features a chapter on Mechanism Design (subject of the 2007 Nobel Prize). Chapters on Mixed Strategies have been reorganized, and additional material has been added throughout the text.

A wide range of modern examples and case studies

Like the successful editions before it, the Third Edition draws from television (Survivor), sports (Chris Evert vs. Martina Navratilova), history (the Cuban Missile Crisis), and students’ lives (grade inflation) for case studies that bring game theory to life.
