Strategy Generator allows students to create
• Standard strategies e.g. Hawk
• Standard strategies e.g. Tit for Tat
• Non-standard strategies: e.g. an average based strategy
ATMUS GAME THEORY TOURNAMENT
Tournament Presenter allows to run the tournament in the class
room in different settings. Here we will choose:
• Uninterrupted Tournament
