Abstract: 

We prove that every multiplayer quitting game admits a sunspot epsilon-equilibrium for every epsilon > 0, that is, an epsilon-equilibrium in an extended game in which the players observe a public signal at every stage. We also prove that if a certain matrix that is derived from the payoff s in the game is a Q-matrix in the sense of linear complementarity problems, then the game admits a Nash epsilon-equilibrium for every epsilon > 0.
