Abstract

I introduce the rules of a bargaining game called “So Long Sucker” to help instructors convey strategic concepts and impart good negotiation skills to their students. In addition, to further bridge the gap between negotiation theory and strategic reality, this note explores several commonalities between “So Long Sucker” and the many strategic interactions in the critically acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad.

Keywords: Bargaining game, Breaking Bad (TV show), negotiation, So Long Sucker (game)
