2.3. Challenge Design

2.3.1. About challenge design

Unlike Software Installation and Site Configuration, challenge design is not intended to need “sys admin” skills. During this phase, the focus is on tailoring the default Makahiki configuration to suit the needs of your specific challenge goals.

2.3.2. Getting to the challenge design page

Go to the Settings Page (see Retrieve the Settings Page), and click on the Challenge Design button to retrieve the page providing the top-level interface to the various aspects of Challenge Design.


As you can see, the page consists of two sections, “Challenge Settings” and “Game Settings”. Challenge settings enables you to set the global properties of the challenge (rounds, scores, users, etc.), while Game Settings enables you to configure the specific games to appear in the challenge and their properties.
