Gambit is an open-source collection of tools for doing computation in game theory. With Gambit, you can build, analyze, and explore game models.
Gambit is fully cross-platform: Get it for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
We are very pleased to again be serving as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2014. If you are a student and potentially interested in being paid to contribute to Gambit this summer, have a look at the Get Involved section below for some starting points. Students with a proven ability to contribute useable code will increase their chances of acceptance significantly! We have also written some general instructions and an application template to help students get started.
Gambit 13 is the current stable version. Start here if you are a student, or a researcher who is new to Gambit.
Gambit 14 is the current development version. Use this if you are a developer, or an advanced researcher who needs the latest features.
For an even faster start, try the online Game Theory Explorer tool, which allows you to build and solve games interactively in your web browser.
Gambit is Free/Open Source software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
We hope you will find Gambit useful for both teaching and research applications. If you do use Gambit in a class, or in a paper, we would like to hear about it. We are especially interested in finding out what you like about Gambit, and where you think improvements could be made.
If Gambit was useful to you in writing a scientific paper, we suggest a citation of the form:
Replace the version number and year as appropriate if you use a different release.
The Gambit Project thanks the University of East Anglia for its current support of the project; the California Institute of Technology and the National Science Foundation for supporting the project from 1994-2001, and the 2011 and 2012 editions of the Google Summer of Code.
The director of the Gambit Project is Prof Dr Theodore Turocy.
