Questions? • You have roughly 2 hours for this session • Some parts of the interface will not be immediately clear • You will NOT have all information needed; you will need to figure a few things by yourself • This is intentional: dealing with it is part of the exercise • Ideally, we would like you to play roughly 6+ iterations in this session. We expect the first 2-3 will take longer than the following ones • Manage your time accordingly • Read the ‘Chocolate Factory User Guide’ carefully before you start • Ask a facilitator at any time if you have problems with the interface
