The discussion of games begins in Section 4 with a brief consideration of games with numerical utilities, when invariance is not an issue. Section 5 then considers concepts that apply only to pure strategies. Next, Section 6 moves on to mixed strategies. Thereafter, Sections 7 and 8 oﬀer brief discussions of quantal responses and evolutionary dynamics. Section 9 asks a diﬀerent but related question: what kinds of transformation preserve equilibrium not just in a single game, but an entire class of game forms with outcomes in a particular consequence domain?
1. CONSEQUENTIALIST GAME FORMS Let X denote a ﬁxed domain of possible consequences. A consequentialist game form is a triple Γ = N, S N , γ where: (i) N is a ﬁnite set of players; (ii) each player i ∈ N has a strategy set Si , and S N = i∈N Si is the set of strategy proﬁles; (iii) there is an outcome function γ : S N → X which speciﬁes what consequence results from each strategy proﬁle in the domain S N . Consider any ﬁxed proﬁle w N of individual utility functions wi : X → R deﬁned on the consequence domain X.
Applied to the non-complete Pareto ordering on a compact set S representing a bargaining situation the two completions have as their respective sets of maximizers the Pareto eﬃcient boundary and the Nash solution of S. This result provides a straightforward interesting interpretation of the Nash solution as a dual version of Pareto optimality. In contrast to the latter it has the advantage to single out a unique point in the eﬃcient boundary. The idea of deﬁning rankings by counting the less preferred alternatives has an old tradition in social choice theory as the famous Borda Count (cf.
