This paper is part of a larger project, which applies a social medicine approach to complex Aboriginal health issues in Northern Australia. A major component of this project is the construction and use of multiplex social networks, both with Aboriginal communities and health care worker networks. In an attempt to overcome difficulties with language diversity and poor survey response, a mobile computer game is under development for determination of the social networks. This paper discusses simulations of the game developed to optimize the server-side processing required to elucidate the network.
