A note on repeated games with non-monotonic value

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We show that even when the information structure is independent of the state of nature, the value of the n-stage zero-sum game with incomplete information is not necessarily monotonic with respect to the length of the game. More precisely, we give an example of such an n-stage game in which V1 > V2 < V3.
