The Retaliation Game

 

We have two players playing in turns. Each player can decide to stop in which case the game is stopped and the two players can go on with their lives, or to act.

The player that acts gains and the other player loose twice as much. 

So in the first round: player I can stop the game, if he acts he gets 1 and the other player II gets -2.
If the games continues in the second turn player II can stop the game, if he acts he gets 1 and player I gets -2.
If the games continues in the third turn player I can stop the game, if he acts he gets +1 and player II gets -2.
