Abstract: This work presents a case study of a game-based learning prototype to define frictional design patterns – design decisions that knowingly impede some specific user interaction – as a type of pattern to support learning with games. We evaluate frictional design patterns by applying the concept to a game focused on scientific argumentation in order to examine the balance between data collection requirements and players' access to information required for certain in-game epistemic performances.
