A simple game provides a framework within which agents can spontaneously self-organize. In this paper, we present this game, and develop basic theory underlying a robust method for distributed coordination based on this game. This method makes use of finite state automata-one associated with each agent-which guide the agents. We give a new, general method of analysis of these systems, which previously had been studied only in limited cases. We also provide a physical example, which should hint at the type of problems resolvable using this method
