Abstract:The aim of this study was to get an answer for the following research question: '' Does scripted collaborative gameplay lead to better learning results and game scores than just playing together?’’. This research question will be tested with two hypotheses: (1) Scripting leads to better learning results (2) Scripting leads to better game scores. 32 children of the seventh and eighth grade from a primary school were randomly assigned into16 pairs. Half of these pairs got assigned a conflicting script (n=8) and the other half did not (n=8). Couples with scripts had conflicting scripts. They had conflicting variables in the game, which they had to make as high as possible. An educational game was played twice by each pair. Each session took 15 minutes. They played twice, so they can apply the experiences gained in the first session into the second session. After playing the educational game the participants had to accomplish a knowledge test.There was no significant effect found based on the learning results. There was a significant effect found in the first game session based the total game score., while in the second game session there was no significant effect based on the total game score.
