I think there was something a while ago about a robot game tournament (either a ball game or some sort of robot-wars demolition derby or such), with entrants from the U.S., Europe and Japan. The American robots' programming tended to concentrate more on attacking their opponents, whereas the others' was less aggressive and more cooperative. I can't remember the actual details though.

That's interesting. It seems ingrained in certain cultures, that in order to win, you need to beat someone else.

Mission: "The goal of this game is for both teams to get as many points as possible."

The meaning of this is not necessarily for YOUR team to get as many points as possible. It means for BOTH teams to get as many points as possible. Cooperation vs. Demolition Derby.
