I'm familiar with these. They are called public goods games - will people contribute to a public good cooperatively, or will they "free-ride" and let others contribute, while reaping the benefits. I don't teach this in intro courses. I'm not familiar enough with all the findings of behavioral/experimental economics.

I do generally teach the ultimatum game, because it's easy for my students (and me!) to understand. I won't go into the details, unless you're interested, but the findings again and again are that people would rather sacrifice their own self-interest than be seen as cheap and selfish or be treated unfairly in a face-to-face (albeit experimental) setting.
