no no no.
The moment I found out I was going to be on this show I would obtain two notarized contracts.
When the time comes to deliberate I whip out the first contract. It states that if I choose “split” I must donate $10k to the KKK + any prize money I get (the $10k at least is held in trust).
Then I ask my opponent to split, I whip out a second contract stating that any and all prize money I receive is going 100% to medical research. His choice now has nothing to do with money for me or him, only if the television studio keeps the money or if it goes to medical research.
I hope this is novel enough to land me a talk show appearance where I pimp my ebook on using cognitive science and game theory to improve your life.
And then your opponent still steals, gets all the money, and nothing goes to medical research. woopty doo.
No, Romeo chooses steal. If his opponent also chooses steal (in spite of Romeo’s credible commitment to choosing steal himself), the opponent does not get any money.
