GameTheory.net provides a definition of simultaneous games which should clear up any lingering doubts:

Simultaneous Game Definition

GameTheory.net was first referenced by Ralf as a presumably reliable resource for game theory information. Here is that reference again:

Perfect Information Game Definition

Ralf, can we shake hands and consider the issue of simultaneous games resolved? May I suggest revising your write up of 55Stones so as not to be misleading and contrary to the science of game theory?

Mark,

Are you offering to shake hands and then in the very next sentence attacking him?

How is that an attack? Ralf was obviously unaware of the pre-existing definition of "simultaneous game" and, now having been so informed, his write up would clearly benefit from an update.

Personally I welcome critiques of my recently released rule sheets, especially those correcting errors. If I viewed such comments as attacks, my rule sheets would be peppered with glaring errors.

If you ever intend to publish something, check your ego at the door. Criticism is a good thing.

I think what Mark is trying to say is that perhaps you could add a parenthetical statement or something in your rules that clarify your use of the word "simultaneous." Mark and I are not the only ones that have found it confusing. There are obviously different ways the word can be used and for the sake of clarity, a minor addition to the rules might be helpful. It's your game, so do what you will. It is only a friendly suggestion.

You're right Ralf (and Keith). Ralf, I've seen how you can dominate an entire forum. Like the poker player who controls the game with an endless supply of cash. Except you wield unlimited free time and rhetoric. I don't want to see that happen here.

Aaron, you're right too. But I'm more concerned about Ralf than Ralf's rule sheet.
