This blog addresses some more profound details about the game entitled The Secret of a good Diet. As we already discuss and our previous blog, two subjects or players are engaged in this game. However, the game is considered to be modify in order to make it a competitive game and more interesting. To return to our principal topic, the subjects were recruited randomly. Some criteria were excluded in order to participate to the experiment. Subjects cannot be in other school level beside middle school students in New York.

Apart from paper, marker, pen, other materials such as computers are used for collecting data. The game is designed or represented on a set of fifty cards. To measure the responses, the performance of the subjects after playing the game was kept into account. Conditions that were created and compared were for the subjects to read carefully the cards they drew. Some of the cards worth ten points while others are equal to zero point. The subject received the instructions verbally before they start playing the  game. All the Data are collected and saved in a computer.

The outcome of the experiment is very interesting.  A normal curve distribution representation with a mean of 100 are used. Students who kept repeating playing the game had scores that fell on two standard deviation above the mean. However those who did not spend too much time playing had scores that fell at one to two standard deviation below the mean.
