Consider the game below played by three players. Player 1 chooses one of the rows (T vs B). Player 2 chooses one of the columns (L vs R). Player 3 chooses one of the three tables (A vs B vs C). Each payoffs cell gives payoffs to players 1, 2 and 3, respectively.

Why are the strategy profiles are (T, R, A), (B, L, A), (B, L, C) and (T, R, C)?

I am stuck in the fact that how do we start at choosing the equilibrium. So for example at A do I choose an equilibrium there and again at B and C. Or do you consider all three players simultaneously? For example, if Player 2 chooses L what's the player's 1 and 3 move?

We would really appreciate you showing some work, else you are very unlikely to get an answer and/or have the question closed in its current state. $\endgroup$ – Brennan Apr 28 at 21:40

    $\begingroup$ @Giskard I have no problem with games with two players, but I haven't dealt with three often. But I will discuss it with the TA for more clarity $\endgroup$ – Ana Ellis Apr 29 at 10:09
