Welcome to Game Theory Explorer

Welcome to the homepage for Game Theory Explorer β, which is a software tool to create and analyze games as models of strategic interaction. An extensive or strategic-form game can be created and nicely displayed with a graphical user interface in a web browser. State-of-the-art algorithms then compute one or all Nash equilibria of the game.
