Part of a continuing effort to extend applications of n-person game theory. This memorandum applies the principles of modern game theory to a set of imaginary horse-market transactions described in Bohm-Bawerk's Positive Theory of Capital (1891). Value solutions are obtained by Monte Carlo techniques for this 18-person market game and for a 16-person variant.
