I posted a question about game theory concepts on the AI site, but it got closed as off-topic.

The question is within the context of reinforcement learning though, is it on-topic here?

    $\begingroup$ In the context of reinforcement learning I expect it's likely to be on topic (it doesn't seem to want to show me your post unless I sign up to the beta). However, there's also economics.SE as an alternative possibility, depending on the emphasis $\endgroup$ – Glen_b Aug 19 '16 at 2:17

    $\begingroup$ math.SE also takes game theory questions $\endgroup$ – Juho Kokkala Aug 19 '16 at 4:58

    $\begingroup$ Consider copy-pasting your question here (if it's not too long). Then we can say if it is on-topic or not. $\endgroup$ – amoeba Aug 19 '16 at 13:26

Game theory is a part of mathematics more so than of statistics / machine learning / data analysis (which is the scope of this site). As such, basic questions on game theory are more on topic on math.SE (1361 Qs in [game-theory], 397 in [combinatorial-game-theory], 109 in [algorithmic-game-theory]) and research-level questions are more on-topic on mathoverflow (154 Qs in [game-theory] and 119 in [combinatorial-game-theory]).

In contrast, we only have a meagre 13 Qs in [game-theory] and the tag does not even have a wiki excerpt, suggesting that nobody really takes care of it.

Your question https://stats.stackexchange.com/q/230619 despite receiving three upvotes seems to be much more suited for math.SE. I have just voted to migrate it there.

Update. The post has been successfully migrated:
