A coordination game is a type of simultaneous game found in game theory. It describes the situation where a player will earn a higher payoff when he selects the same course of action as another player. The game is not one of pure conflict, which results in multiple pure strategy Nash equilibria in which players choose matching strategies. Figure 1 shows a 2-player example.

dbo:abstract
• A coordination game is a type of simultaneous game found in game theory. It describes the situation where a player will earn a higher payoff when he selects the same course of action as another player. The game is not one of pure conflict, which results in multiple pure strategy Nash equilibria in which players choose matching strategies. Figure 1 shows a 2-player example. Both (Up, Left) and (Down, Right) are Nash equilibria. If the players expect (Up, Left) to be played, then player 1 thinks his payoff would fall from 2 to 1 if he deviated to Down, and player 2 thinks his payoff would fall from 4 to 3 if he chose Right. If the players expect (Down, Right), player 1 thinks his payoff would fall from 2 to 1 if he deviated to Up, and player 2 thinks his payoff would fall from 4 to 3 if he chose Left. A player's optimal move depends on what he expects the other player to do, and they both do better if they coordinate than if they played an off-equilibrium combination of actions. This setup can be extended to more than two strategies or two players. (en)
