Reducing building evacuation time is a challenging research, which has been studied from any aspects up to now. In many of these researches to evaluate the proposed method a simulation has been used. Simulating building evacuation is cost effective and very accessible to all. However, the reality of the results of the simulation environment is very important. Each agent in simulation must exactly do the same as a panic evacuee performs in the disaster time. Uncertainty is attached to human behavior and especially in panic time it shows increase. However, the parameter of uncertainty has not yet included in evacuee behavior for evacuation simulation. In this paper, using game theory, an agent-based model has been proposed where the value of uncertainty during the time will be decreased. The results of this study showed that the evacuation time by considering uncertainty is not the same without considering it. Based on different scenarios it can be more or less. Nevertheless, this shows that without considering uncertainty, the results of evacuation simulation may not be close to real.
