About the intervention

A chaotic cooking game where players need to work together to serve as many dishes as they can before the timer runs out.

How to set it up.

  • Prepare gaming consoles or computers compatible with the game.

  • Allocate students into teams for competitions.

  • Ask those in your cohort that are willing to participate to purchase the game. Encourage them to bring their own computers if they have the game and their computers are compatible with it.

  • Set up a Google form for participants to indicate whether they want to play cooperatively or competitively.

What to do during.

  • Allocate participants into pairs if they have indicated to play cooperatively, or groups of 4 if they have chosen to play competitively.

  • For those playing in pairs, they could either play on one computer by using the keyboard together, or they could play on two computers via remote play on Steam (requires internet). The first option is highly recommended as it would reduce lags due to poor internet connection.

  • For those playing in 2V2, they could either play on two computers, with each team sharing one computer and one keyboard, or they could play on four computers. Both options use remote play on Steam.

  • If players do not wish to share one keyboard, one of them could use gaming consoles. However, playing with a console is more difficult than playing with a keyboard. If someone wants to use a gaming console but does not have any prior experience with it, it's good to let that person know about this, and probably make a few trial runs.

How you can mix it up ...

Size: In larger cohorts, students could be divided into teams and compete with other teams.
