    For what it is worth I have mailed the author to find out.

    There is an entry for the Aumann and Schelling Nobel Prize in 2005

    Interesting 1981 development
    R. J. Aumann published a Survey of Repeated Games. This survey firstly proposed the idea of applying the notion of an automaton to describe a player in a repeated game. A second idea from the survey is to study the interactive behaviour of bounded players by studying a game with appropriately restricted set of strategies. These ideas have given birth to a large and growing literature.

    What if they had used the notion of a human being playing in a repeated game like criket or baseball?

    The short answer to your question is that I haven’t been keeping up as well as I should have. Added to that is the problem these days of working out what is game theory, as such, and what is econ or pols or biology etc. Game theory is so much part of other areas now that’s it’s difficult to workout what is game theory and what isn’t. The whole page needs a rewrite so if anyone has some ideas on what should be included post-94 let me know.
