Using game theory at Satan’s dinner party

Using game theory at Satan’s dinner party

This is an absolutely spell-binding account of what happens when you pay a lot of money to have an incredibly strange meal. The post does a good job of running down the rules and basic strategy of what to do at this sort of event, but the ending is unexpected and pretty great.

I'm not sure what I learned from this story, other than I want to throw one of these parties and see how things progress. I found this to be a perfect spot of reading for Halloween.
