Full Definition of Non Zero Sum Game


In game theory, a non zero-sum game is a situation where one decision maker’s gain (or loss) does not necessarily result in the other decision-makers’ loss (or gain). In other words, where the winnings and losses of all players do not add up to zero and everyone can gain: a win-win game.
