Negotiations and decisions in a politics game : report presented at the Social Choice Conference, University of Pittsburgh, Sept. 9, 1968 by W. Edgar Vinacke( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Groups ranging in size from 3 through 9 played a game in which the participants represented political leaders. The aim was to elect a party chairman. Procedure involved writing messages, holding conferences, voting on whether or not to hold an election, and the election. Coalition members were told to make agreements on the 'spoils.' Players had votes according to weights in five power patterns: all-equal, tie, all-powerful, all different, and one stronger-one weaker. There were 49 male and 56 female groups, at least five of each sex at each size. Three major issues were examined: (1) the effect of size; (2) sex differences; and (3) theoretical explanation of coalitions as a function of perceived strength versus coalitions based on the cheapest winning combination.

Power, strategy, and the formation of coalitions in triads under four incentive conditions by W. Edgar Vinacke( Book )
2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
A simple competitive board game was used to determine the characteristics of strategy manifested by three-person groups. Intra-member relationships in relative power were varied by the drawing of weights to establish conditions in which the three players were all-equal, one or two members were stronger but when any two exceeded the third in strength, and one member was all-powerful. Six of these patterns were adopted, in three successive series, making 18 games for each group. Data were collected from 30 groups of each sex, playing under one of four incentives, namely, game-by-game scoring, cumulative scoring, delayed payoff monetary reward, and immediate payoff monetary reward. Inter-sex and inter-incentive comparisons were made in terms of kind and incidence of coalitions, deals reached, amount and character of bargaining, and a number of manifestations of strategy. Results indicate that the general style of play is similar under all incentives, with certain specific variations produced by the special problems posed by the incentive condition. The most striking behavior is associated with differences between exploitative (masculine) and accommodative (feminine) strategy. (Author)

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
