16 - 4 - Blotto_ Troop Advantages

Game Theory

"The advantage of being stronger really depends on there being, you know, not as many fronts for over the troops. And then, we've seen if we go to a Multiplayer Blotto game, that we're likely to get cycles where one player beats two, two beats three, and then three can beat one or something like that, so we get these interesting cycles. We don't get sort of a consistent winner. So what Blotto does, if we have a situation, a competitive situation that looks like Blotto, we have some understanding of what the structure of winners should look like, and that's different than what we've seen in our other models." - Transcript from Scott Page Coursera
