The idea is to not tell them it's an experiment. Obviously they'll know something is up when you raise bedrock barriers around a small chunk of land and order them not to cross it, but they won't know what you are up to. From the OP's post, it seems a few of them got the idea right away (and, if you read on, you'll notice they did pretty well with renewable water, food, wood and cobblestone, even though they took advantage of their economic superiority by griefing the others, either out of distrust, fear, or just because they could) but most of them were clueless and just played normally until resources went extinct.
I would love to carry out/participate in an experiment like this myself, but dont know how well it will work if everyone knew what the goal was from the get go, Any one has ideas on how to execute it? I was talking to some friends who would be interested in participating so i can participate in something like this.
