What if twelve strangers were deposited in separate locations all over New York City and ordered to find each other-without being told where to look? This ABC News program presents an intriguing psychological puzzle involving participants who must join up-somehow, somewhere-in a city of eight million people. Incorporating principles from the mathematical discipline known as game theory, the program shows how envisioning the plans and intentions of others, even when utilizing the scantiest of evidence and the most basic of inferences, can produce a viable strategy. Commentary from Yale management professor and renowned game theory expert Barry Nalebuff is featured.
