Prisoner’s Dilemma

Two prisoners are in jail (wherelse?).

The only chance to escape from there is to use a window set high in the wall.

Both prisoners know they need other’s help to escape, but they also know that once they reach the window they would not help the other as their incentive is to escape as soon as possible to avoid to be caught by the guardian.

They know that by cooperating they could get free, but the game as it is does not provide a way to escape from the bad equilibrium
