Indiana Jones gives us a fun example of game theory.
In the Raiders of the Lost Ark there is a scene where Indy is faced with a highly skilled opponent wielding a huge sword. If he fights on the same terms as his opponent then he will surely lose. Instead he pulls out a gun and shoots the sword guy dead.
I’m not sure if this link will work from every country but here is the clip on youtube:
Make sure you know the game that is being played. Indy wins by playing to different rules than his opponent.
Today’s takeaway: Changes in technology can change the rules of the game. Make sure you’re not sharpening your sword while your competitors are pulling out their guns.
