Since I missed the testing session on Monday - was doing my best to get on top of my exam on Maths on Tuesday - had to arrange my own testing session with friends/family.
I had a total of 6 testers/3 pairs of people.
The two hypothesis that I had were:
- 2 people or kids will find a way to self-organize to get the correct answers to the questions asked
- In pairs people will enjoy playing the game more than if they were to play alone.
Both hypothesis were correct. People did enjoy playing as a team more than playing on their own. From my observations - somebody would take a leading role and say - who has to do what:
- "You step on 9, I'll step on 1" and this is how we'll do that
The other person would follow the instructions.
When playing on their own - one of the participants was a 6 y.o. girl - she had no difficulties figuring out how to play the game at all.
Here are the comments from test participants:
100% of participants preferred to play as a team/with a friend more - it was more fun for them.
- most of test participants were adults, this is a limitation
- occasionally some of the buttons wouldn't work - that's technology limitations
I do think that the game is successful, useful and, perhaps, could even be successfully built and released to the general public.
