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