Abstract : This paper tackles the problem of a discrete time N players game affected by some sort of time-varying uncertain perturbation. The philosophy of the uncertainty worst case scenario with respect to the i-player is developed to derive necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of an Open Loop Robust Nash Equilibria. Such conditions are presented in terms of the solvability of a set of discrete time Riccati type equations with some boundary conditions. As an illustration of the solution, a simulation of the coordination of a two-echelon supply chain with uncertain seasonal fluctuations in the demand is developed.
