Talk:Peace war game

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

"Peace war game" is to "Chicken game" as "Apples" is to "Oranges". The point has been discussed ad nauseum elsewhere by several editors, but (IMHO) not addressed by the author of this article. I'm redirecting to Prisoner's dilemma per discussion on Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Game_theory etc. Pete.Hurd 14:55, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Hello Pete, I thought I addressed it ad nauseum, as you say, on the Chicken game discussion page, but I'll address it here, too. A unilateral REDIRECT to Prisoner's dilemma, deletes historical linkages, analyses, references, and edits by others, but most importantly ignores the sense of discussions on the subject, particularly w.r.t. combining it with other game theory pages. The Peace War Game has direct implications for peace, war, foreign policy, economics, personal morality, etc. without wading through a lot of game theory. Please, leave it. --Mbhiii 15:05, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Can you provide sources for the claims made in the article? Specifically I'd like to see one for "It is a variation, also called Hawk and Dove, of the iterated prisoner's dilemma". If it really is a topic with a rich history, then it ought to be possible to document to match. Pete.Hurd 15:12, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
I should be more honest. The idea that this game "is a variation, also called Hawk and Dove, of the iterated prisoner's dilemma" seems so wrong that I have no faith in the accuracy of the rest of this article. Pete.Hurd 17:53, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Let me also say, that Pete is not doing this unilaterally. I too would like to see sources for the page. --best, kevin [kzollman][talk] 17:43, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Looks like I was being accused of doing it unilaterally too. ~ trialsanderrors 23:31, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Rationale for redirection[edit]

For rationale for redirection, see discussion on Talk:Chicken (game)#Peace war game, Talk:Chicken (game)#Hawk Dove/Chicken and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Game theory#Collaboration. Pete.Hurd 22:00, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Note, rewritten to address above concerns. -63.98.135.196 (talk) 19:12, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Redirect this article to Prisoner's Dilemma[edit]

Shouldn't this be redirected to Prisoner's Dilemma, they're pretty much the same thing. 24.1.201.172 (talk) 00:34, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
