We present a simple and intuitive model of a game defined precisely by each player’s preference orders of their strategies, given the strategies of the other players. These orders define a graph called the ‘response graph’ of the game. We discuss why the response graph is a natural model. Most importantly, we find that the graph-based approach leads to new insights and predictions that improve upon our understanding of game theory, particularly evolution in game
