  • Abstract : We introduce a decision game model with finite number of types and each type has finite number of homogeneous players. We assume that each type of player has similar characteristics and will choose only between two alternative choices or decisions). The preference for each type of players is described by a discrete utility function which gathers the influence of players in the same group and the influence of players from the other groups. We will characterize all pure ''united or separated'' and mixed strategies that form Nash equilibria. The united strategies ensure that all players with same type will make same decision, while separated strategy includes at least one type of players who do not make same decision. We will determine the strategic thresholds for each type that identify the Nash regions in space. As a special case, we consider three types of homogeneous players and use geometry to construct three dimensional regions for Nash equilibria, where the horizontal axis reflects the preference for players of type one, the vertical axis reflects the preference for the players of type two, and the depth axis reflects the preferences for the players of type three, and we characterize all Nash equilibria regions. Finally, we apply our model in economics ''tourist sector'' by introducing a resort model for three types of tourists distributed among two resorts and determine the competitive Nash Equilibrium prices for given preference for the three types of tourists.
