While typically used as a theoretical model for human behavior rather than a game, Meta Games have been built around the Prisoner's Dilemma where the challenge is to create good programs or algorithms that can win against other programs and algorithms. Since these Meta Games have no name, this entry is listed as a Programming Game and the gameplay design patterns listed here refer to the Meta Games.
