The bargaining sets have been introduced as concepts of solution for cooperative n—person games with side payments by R.J.Aumann and M. Maschler (1964) and studied further by many authors. A comparison of various solutions for games with coalition structures has been done by R.J.Aumann and J.Dreze (1974). In a previous paper of one of the authors I.Dragan (1988), a modified concept of bargaining set, called the compensatory bargaining set, has been introduced and a combinatorial characterization of the noncore elements in the compensatory bargaining set has been obtained. This characterization becomes particularly simple for some classes of games. One of them, the class of big boss games, is considered in this paper.
