Overview

A Course in Game Theory presents the main ideas of game theory at a level suitable for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, emphasizing the theory's foundations and interpretations of its basic concepts. The authors provide precise definitions and full proofs of results, sacrificing generalities and limiting the scope of the material in order to do so. The text is organized in four parts: strategic games, extensive games with perfect information, extensive games with imperfect information, and coalitional games. It includes over 100 exercises.

    A Good Game Theory Text

    Osborne-Rubinstein do a great job at covering many of the subtle points in game theory; I wouldn't recommend this book as an introductory text [though if you are really interested, it is do-able as such].
