|Abstract: ||This paper describes a series of five in-class experiments run in a third-year industrial organisation course. A description is given of how these experiments can be run informally in a classroom without computers, while still maintaining a reasonable level of control. Each experiment involves an anonymous five-round ‘round-robin’ tournament. Thus, students play a total of 5 × 5 = 25 games, and are unaware of who they are playing in any particular game. The five games are: Bertrand price competition, Cournot quantity competition, an ultimatum vs. a dictator game, sealed-bid auctions, and a limit quantity model.|
