I'd say, they cannot get out of their seats, they cannot yell for people to join, and they need to start within one minute (no waiting for people to join). If they do want a private game, they can use the screen name as the password. It's mostly K-6, but there are a few for grades 7-8. Also, there are a few games that are not multi-player.
