**Abstract**

Neutrosophic set is considered as a generalized of crisp set, fuzzy set, and intuitionistic fuzzy set for representing the uncertainty, inconsistency, and incomplete knowledge about a real world problem. This paper aims to develop two-person zero- sum matrix games in a single valued neutrosophic environment. A method for solving the game problem with indeterminate and inconsistent information is proposed. Finally, two examples are given to illustrate the practically and the efficiency of the method.
