Oil Search

Young scholars participate in a mock oil search game and attempt to find "oil" in a model oil field. They drill initially based on random guessing, but each time they drill they use prior knowledge to determine where to drill next. They must pay each time they drill, so they try to find oil using the least amount of initial payout.
