I missed the point of the game. As we talked about in class it was too easy to figure out serendips next move; if you cooperate it will, but if you compete it will compete in the next round. I started off cooperating every time, and I won every time. Then after figuring out the pattern it became just as easy to win. To me it reminds me of high school. So many kids competed with the teacher by not doing homework when it was due or at all. I guess you could say that those students who did well in the class figured out the "pattern" and found that by turning in homework you get the credit which ultimately benefits you. The same can be said of alot of everyday tasks. If you figure out the pattern; what works and what doesn't, then you can make your next move accordingly.
