Foremost, this paper describes the game design, its practical set-up and the methodology for collecting data from gaming sessions so that future researchers can make use of the game. Additionally, this white paper includes a complete overview of the first empirical results obtained from 7 gaming sessions as part of the research in (Scharpff et al. 2019). The source code and design documents can be found on GitLab and may be used for academic purposes only.
