Distributed blackbox (DBB) is an adapted version of the game of blackbox. It is shown why DBB is a suitable testbed for experimental research in distributed problem solving, wherein several experts cooperate with each other to solve a single problem. DBB is compared with another well-known testbed called DVMT (distributed vehicle monitoring testbed), and the advantages and disadvantages of using DBB are made apparent. Knowledge engineering, verification, and performance evaluation of the underlying expert systems for DBB require fewer man-years than for DVMT, while the richness of the problems to be solved is retained
