To accommodate as many young people as possible, we have grouped two young people by computer stations. Not only does this create a lot of frustration for the control of the mouse, the kids did not like the “everyone’s turn” method at all . Surprising, no?

I still have ears buzzing!

So I quickly added a two-player cooperative game, Fireboy and Watergirl , which was added to my games list. Cooperative games also help to adjust the strength of teams and help young people to socialize.

A great success for cooperation: Fireboy and Watergirl

Un autre succès plutôt surprenant fut l’ajout de petits jeux compétitifs très simples, comme Jump It, qui attirent les jeunes par leur accessibilité (ok, je dois admettre qu’ils n’utilisent pas le terme accessibilité). À l’inverse, il m’aura fallu plus d’acharnement de temps pour convaincre les jeunes d’essayer des jeux plus complexes. Ces jeux se sont finalement retrouvés parmis les plus appréciées; les jeunes nommaient fréquemment Plantes contre Zombies et Small Worlds parmi leurs jeux préférés.

If I had to redo it … I would select more cooperative games and small competitive games. I would categorize games into three categories: cooperative, competitive and immersive to better explain the differences between different online games.
