I would also encourage anyone who is interested in this and has an android
or ios device to check out Spaceteam, a free game app which is a silly
unrealistic space game along the same lines. Up to 4 players can play over
wifi (or 2 over bluetooth). Each player has a small dash board on their
screen of unique controls, and receives instructions which they must shout
out for the other players to execute.

"Set gyrothruster to 2"
"Enable foglamp"
"Prepare taxes"

It's good fun
