In science:

Games are formalized by assuming that all parties can choose from a set of well-defined strategies, and that a deterministic payoff function is defined for any choice of strategies.
Quantum Parrondo's game with random strategies
This brings us to a notion of quantum games, where strategies of each party are quantum states and manipulations with strategies are described by completely positive (CP) maps.
Quantum Parrondo's game with random strategies
The payoff function is then a quantum observable on the tensor product of state spaces of all parties. A nontrivial aspect of quantum games is the possibility of a superposition of strategies, which may significantly affect the expected payoff.
Quantum Parrondo's game with random strategies
In quantum cryptography applications, quantum devices can replace the third trusted party needed for some games (e.g. quantum gambling ).

Guess your neighbour's input: no quantum advantage but an advantage for quantum theory
Unlike the previous example, here, although each party still has absolute uncertainty about his neighbour’s input, no-signalling correlations are able to exploit a global correlation (the parity of the input-string) to increase the chance of correct guess. 3-player game.
