Two thirds of the average game

Welcome to this online version of the two thirds of the average game.

Here are the rules of the game as given on the wikipedia page:

"In game theory, Guess 2/3 of the average is a game where several people guess what 2/3 of the average of their guesses will be, and where the numbers are restricted to the real numbers between 0 and 100, inclusive. The winner is the one closest to the 2/3 average."

I use this game quite a lot in my teaching and during outreach events. I've blogged about it here.

It's a game to get participants to understand concepts of dominated strategies:

I'd very much appreciate you having a go and playing along :)

I plan to write a blog post whenever I have about 200 players play (I'll refresh the data store every 200 players).
