A mean-field-like theory of the evolutionary minority game (EMG) based on the consideration of a particular agent in the environment formed by the rest of the population is presented. The results are in good agreement with numerical data. The theory can be readily generalized to different variations of the EMG, such as when the winning decision is assigned according to whether the attendance is lower than a certain cutoff.
