The NetworGame program package

The NetworGame 2.0 program package is a simulation tool for simulating repeated spatial two-player two-strategy games. NetworGame 2.0 allows the adaptive choice of the simulation length and the number of simulations by using its built-in statistics module, as well as the manual specification of these parameters.

Key features of the NetworGame program package:

The simulation program includes

  1. options for specifying custom pay-off matrices ;
  2. several well-known replicator-type strategy update rules, as well as the option for additional strategy update rules in a ‘plugin’-type format;
  3. synchronous, and semi-synchronous updating;
  4. the option for the inclusion of any real world networks in Pajek format;
  5. the program allows setting the starting strategy of any nodes according to the wish of the experimenter, and
  6. introduces the novel use of link weights by considering link weights as probabilities of the game played between the corresponding nodes;
