Add more time for extra actions

Post by sothello »

Sorry if this has been posted before, but occasionally in this game you can string together multiple turns (eg., 4 consecutive turns instead of 1). As far as I can tell, the clock doesn’t reset for each turn and you really only have the time allocated for one turn. Whenever that happens, I inevitable run out of time. It would be great if each turn could be treated as independent and players could therefore be given more time for each turn. Otherwise, I key aspect of this game (combos across multiple consecutive turns) doesn’t really work.

Any update?

Example: You play Eagle, then Conservation to take another turn, then the Cobra to get hypnosis (use another action), then the bear to play another association action. But as far as I can tell, the clock doesn't give you more time for extra actions. Having more time seems reasonable.

I've been expelled from games that I was about to win (in one case I had about 120 to my opponents 65) because my last turn had 3 actions.

I would also favor adding a time extension button that I player could use for an extra minute once per game.

I think all games have a time bank. E.g. Fast = Start at 3 min, get an extra min each move up to a maximum of 3 min. So if your other moves are 1 min each, you get 3 min for the 3-action last move automatically.

This happened to me 2 or 3 times as well. It's such a dick move to make. People even do it when you ask them nicely for a bit more time in chat.

Nobody forces you to take 3 extra turns. If you decide to take an action that you can't finish in your remaining time, it's your fault.

Huh? If the assumption is that a turn takes X amount of time, then that time should be given whenever a turn is taken, extra or not. Sometimes it is impossible to perform a complete combo in the allotted time for a single turn.
