Can ODK run a social game like Prisoners dilemma?

I am searching for a solution to run social games that require a choice of a strategy such as in Prisoners dilemma. Using ODK on tablets in the African field is important too. But my main question here is can ODK support game style interfaces? If anyone has experience with this please contact me.

with thanks

Hi Stuart,

ODK is survey software, so if you can envision it working within the
framework of a survey then it probably could. I think you'd have to define
the use case before anyone could really provide details. Is it as simple
as describing the parameters, then having a question that says "What do you
choose to do? A) Betray your partner B) Keep silent"? If so then I think
it'd be fine.

If you want it to function in a more dynamic way, keep in mind that surveys
structurally have a beginning and an end, and move in a fairly linear way
from one to the other. This flow doesn't really fit with how many games
work, so you'd really need to define how you want it to function and then
see if ODK can accommodate that.
