Abstract
We examine maximin and minimax strategies for players in twoplayers game with two strategic variables and . We consider two patterns of game; one is the xgame in which strategic variables of players are x's, and the other is the pgame in which strategic variables of players are p's. We call two players Players A and B, and will show that the maximin strategy and the minimax strategy in the xgame, and the maximin strategy and the minimax strategy in the pgame are all equivalent for each player. However, the maximin strategy for Player A and that for Player B are not necessarily equivalent, and they are not necessarily equivalent to their Nash equilibrium strategies in the xgame nor the pgame. But, in a special case, where the objective function of Player B is the opposite of the objective function of Player A, the maximin strategy for Player A and that for Player B are equivalent, and they constitute the Nash equilibrium both in the xgame and the pgame.
