In the Ethiopian Dinner Game, invented by Lionel Levine and Katherine E. Stange, two players strategically take turns eating morsels of food from the same platter in order to maximize their personal satisfactions with the meal. Levine and Stange described game strategies that are further explored in this paper. I created computer programs to calculate general information about game outcomes and to collect data about a variety of Ethiopian Dinner games. Patterns were detected in games with smaller-sized dinners, and some patterns were proved for all dinners, while others remain conjectures.
