The Minority Game was introduced to show basic properties of competitive systems with limited common information resources. M. Paczuski and K. E. Bassler introduced a Minority Game with personal limited information resources, where each agent knows the past actions of randomly chosen neighbors [M. Paczuski, K.E. Bassler, Self-organized Networks of Competing Boolean Agents (1999)]. They asked whether such a system can show cooperation. In this paper we show that agents who are placed in a circle are able to cooperate due to self-organization. Furthermore, we introduce a new evolution method to optimize the cooperation among the agents.
