This paper examines the connection between Ludwig von Mises and early contributors to game theory. What becomes clear is that early game theorists were trained by Austrians who thus influenced the field from its beginning. The connection most commonly known is the influence Mises had on Oskar Morgenstern, however, this paper reveals a previously unknown connection between Mises, Bert Hozelitz, and John Nash.
