Ultimatum game with responder competition
This is a variant of the
Ultimatum game. You belong to a group of five players. One of you will
be randomly chosen to be the proposer, the other four are responders. The
proposer offers a share of 100 points. Each responder can either accept
or reject the offer. If several responders accept an offer, one will be
chosen at random and this deal will then be performed, and the others will
not (i.e. the other responders get nothing).
Number of players: 30 (6 games)
Mean proposal: 9.5 ± 8.8
Distribution of proposals:
Usually the proposers offer close to zero points.
Only one player (out of 8) accepts an offer of 1 unit
Two players (out of 8) reject even an offer of 20 units
