Nashpy: a python library for 2 player games.

Nashpy is:


Full documentation is available here:


$ python -m pip install nashpy

To install Nashpy on Fedora, use:

$ dnf install python3-nashpy


Create bi matrix games by passing two 2 dimensional arrays/lists:

>>> import nashpy as nash
>>> A = [[1, 2], [3, 0]]
>>> B = [[0, 2], [3, 1]]
>>> game = nash.Game(A, B)
>>> for eq in game.support_enumeration():
...     print(eq)
(array([1., 0.]), array([0., 1.]))
(array([0., 1.]), array([1., 0.]))
(array([0.5, 0.5]), array([0.5, 0.5]))
>>> game[[0, 1], [1, 0]]
array([3, 3])

Other game theoretic software

  • Gambit is a library with a python api and support for more algorithms and more than 2 player games.
  • Game theory explorer a web interface to gambit useful for teaching.
  • Axelrod a research library aimed at the study of the Iterated Prisoners dilemma


Clone the repository and create a virtual environment:

$ git clone
$ cd nashpy
$ python -m venv env

Activate the virtual environment and install tox:

$ source env/bin/activate
$ python -m pip install tox

Make modifications.

To run the tests:

$ python -m tox
