Rather than rewrite the post from MSDN Blog, I felt it was easier to just copy and paste it.
Microsoft Research Project Waterloo
25 Sep 2011 1:14 AM
The Research Games team in Microsoft Research, of which I’m a member, has just published its first game, Project Waterloo (or, to give it it’s full, if somewhat verbose, name, Microsoft Research Project Waterloo).
This is an example of a Colonel Blotto style game, one of many economic games we want to investigate. Placing it on Facebook, we want to explore the game in a non-lab environment, and to see how well such a game spreads on social networks.
