Here is what’s been occupying my mind to the point where I can’t sleep, eat, or work. Except that I can still sleep, eat, and work, but the rest is true. Anyway, this:
A “zero-sum game” refers to a situation where for player A to win, player B must lose. In other words, if each has 5 wigets, conditions that will give A 6 wigets will give B 4 wigets.
A “non-zero-sum game” refers to a situation where both player A and player B can win. In other words, if each has 5 wigets, there are conditions that will permit each of them to go to 6 wigets.
So, my question is: Is there a term for a semi-zero-sum game? In other words, suppose there are conditions under which A can get 7 wigets leaving B with 4 wigets? I know this can happen, but is there a term for it?
This question has been tormenting me.
Okay, now I go roast the turkey.
