In game theory, a sequential game is a game where one player chooses his action before the others choose theirs. Importantly, the later players must have some information of the first's choice, otherwise the difference in time would have no strategic effect. Extensive form representations are usually used for sequential games, since they explicitly illustrate the sequential aspects of a game.

Combinatorial games are usually sequential games.

Sequential games are often solved by backward induction.
