    One way of playing The Centipede Game goes like this:

    Consider two players: You and Bob. You have two stacks of money in front of you: one stack contains 4 bills and the other stack contains 1 bill. You are the first to move and you can "double" the money or "take" it. If you "double" the money both stacks double in value, if you play "take" the game ends and the largest stack is yours. The rest of the money is for Bob. When you "double" Bob has the same two options as you. The game lasts for 10 rounds. When you play Bob will respond immediately.
