Abstract . `Spatial games' in form of reaction-diffusion equations are used to justify the risk-dominant solution for 2x2 games. For more general games, we explore the differences and similarities of our new dominance relation to (generalized) Nash products and the Harsanyi-Selten risk-dominance relation.
