This game is scientific experiment, you and your friends can play. The task of the player in the game is to find as many gold nuggets in a given area. While other players in the group (in the game room) try to reach the same goal. The winner is the player who finds the most nuggets and when the game is finished the winner is marked as a Leader. The movement of players in game can be imagined as a swarm algorithm searching the area.

Finished game is saved on the server and this procedure of searching the area will be compare by different software algorithms of artificial intelligence.

It is about conclusion whether people can search the given area faster than artificial intelligence.
