Game theory is fun to teach because the real world applications, exemplifations, etc. are legion, and the theory so often does more than merely redescribe the situation, but actually brings new insight.  If, however, you are out of good examples, you may want to check out Game Theory.net’s list of game theory in film, music and fiction

    Thanks for pointing this site out. I found a lot more books similar to Steven J. Brams “Theory of Moves” on their political science page:


    [IMHO the contingent strategic human agency dimension is too often ignored nowadays in economics or history, for instance, in favour of more deterministic structural factors amenable to statistical modelling. Game theory gets at this strategic dimension but their is a huge divide between the mathematicians and those who deal with the actual messiness and complexity of lived history, scholars who are able to verbalise the math and relate it to actual events still seem few and far between.]
