I guess it's a nice idea, but what actually is the point? How is it going to help? (Are you going to tell them that it's how it works?)

If you aren't telling them, they won't stop yelling. It'll take take them a while to find that out, and will only annoy them. I think it'll make them yell even more, because they'll get mad even more when their game fails in the middle.

I think you're trying to find a solution to the wrong problem.

Don't underestimate the kids resources, they'll probably find a way to bypass whatever system you implement.

I'd be tempted to tell them off and use the three strikes and you're out policy, change the router wifi password if they don't comply.
