"Discovery" simulation

To anyone who has used the Interact unit Discovery, I'm wondering if it would work to do groups of four, rather than groups of five or six. What complications would I run into?

We went through this and finished a few weeks ago. The drawbacks to groups of four would be as follows:

- less money to start out with (money is based on grades/scores on assignments and therefore would be lower, which may result in debt at the end of the simulation)
- students would have to double on jobs (with 5 students in a group you already have 1 person with 2 jobs)

I realize I am a little late on this reply, but I am doing it right now with groups of four. It is my first time doing it and it is going well so far. I felt that if groups were larger there would be more sitting around by certain individuals.

I decided to go ahead and do groups of six and it's working fine. Thanks for your feedback.
