Consider the following parlor game to be played between two players. Each player begins with three chips: one red, one white, and one blue. Each chip can be used only once.To begin, each player selects one of her chips and places it on the table, concealed. Both players then uncover the chips and determine the payoff to the winning player. In particular, if both players play the same kind of chip, it is a draw; otherwise the following table indicates the winner and how much she receives from the other player. Next, each player selects one of her two remaining chips and repeats the procedure, resulting in another payoff according to the following table. Finally each player plays her one remaining chip, resulting in the third and final payoff.
Formulate this problem as a two-person, zero-sum game by identifying the form of the strategies and payoffs.
