Winning and losing teams in three games under conditions of intra-league competition ( Book )
3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Strategy-attitudes, skill, and decision-making were investigated in relation to winning and losing. Sets of teams, formed into leagues, played round-robins in three competitive games, multiplication, paddlepong, and rhythmic clapping. Most teams consisted of four players, one of whom served as a substitute. Strategy was measured by a multiple-choice test, other variables by aspects of performance during play. Criteria of winning included the percent of rounds won and the percent of games won. Substantial monetary prizes were awarded for winning. A large number of variables differentiated sharply among teams within a particular league, and some significantly correlated with success when teams are pooled. However, attempts to arrive at systematic classification of variables by developing general measures of 'skill' and 'decision making' reveal patterns distinctive for particular leagues. This suggests that the determinants of winning depend in large measure upon the conditions that exist within the league. The two sexes displayed general differences, interpreted as evidence that skill assumes a major role in the male leagues, and some combination of strategy and decision-making (especially as reflected in use of the substitute) is more important in female leagues.

Two tests to measure exploitative and accommodative strategy by W. Edgar Vinacke( Book )
2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An exploratory study was conducted to examine the possibility of assessing tendencies to express attitudes hypothesized to be accommodative and exploitative in typical competitive situations. The characteristics in question are based upon a series of experiments with triads, in which power-relationships among the members were varied. An objective (multiple-choice) instrument of 12 items was devised, in which statements were prepared to cover the just-mentioned characteristics. Similarly, a semi-projective test, modeled after the French Test of Insight, of 14 items, was developed. A pilot reliability study on those Ss for whom retests were available produced satisfactory results. Using behavorial measures from the Board and Quiz games, a considerable number of significant correlations with test scores were found, for both sexes, especially in the Board Game, and especially for the objective tests
Strategy in three games : a replication by W. Edgar Vinacke( Book )
3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
An attempt was made to replicate the situations in which significant differences in strategy occurred between the sexes as a function of differences in the character of games played by triads. Each of two experimenters ran 12 triads through the masculine board game, the masculine quiz game, and the feminine quiz game, with order of games counterbalanced. Three contests of each of four power-patterns were used, namely, All-Equal, One Stronger, All-Different, and All-Powerful. Cumulative scores were maintained as an incentive condition. The sex differences previously ascertained occurred also in this experiment, but the Index of Strategy did not significantly differentiate the three kinds of games. The Feminine Quiz Game did not significantly increase accommodative strategy, as measured by this Index, although the two sexes differed significantly in the predicted direction in each of the games. The Feminine Quiz Game elicited less bargaining in the male triads and more bargaining in the female triads than did the other two games. In the Feminine Quiz Game there was a greater tendency in the female triads for the two players behind to ally, and an opposite tendency in male triads. Both characteristics can be interpreted as reflecting differential interest in the games. (Author)
