Example: Battle of the sexes

Example: Battle of the sexes

A man and a woman are hoping to attend an event together, but they must choose between a prizefight or a ballet.

They cannot communicate where they will go beforehand, and the man in this story would prefer to go to the prizefight while the woman in this scenario would like to go to the ballet.

This game has two unique Nash equilibrium strategies: one in which they both go to the prizefight and one in which they both go to the ballet.
