This is an interesting idea. The difficulty, I would think, is that there would still be an original member of the pair. So, the assumptions and explanation of the code could be conveyed.

Glad to hear you got a chance to facilitate.
I often will stop the group with 5 minutes to spare and tell them that I made a mistake, it is actually a 3d grid, bounded on one side. I'll then ask them to spend the 5 minutes…"
