Ending Turn

Hi all, I'm new to the site and just trying to read up on all of the rules. When one player ends their turn by hitting the "End Turn" button, does the next person's turn begin, or do you have to wait out the rest of the 24 hours for the next person's turn to begin? Just trying to see if the game can move faster than one turn every 24 hours, or if that is always the speed of play.

Thanks!

There are various things in place to ensure games move quicker than snail pace.

As for ending turns and phases ending, it all depends on the game. Each round has at most 5 phases, regardless of the number of players in the game. Each player is allocated to a phase, and once all the players in a phase have finished their turn, it ticks over to the next phase. Once all phases in a round finish, it goes to the next round, and it all starts again.

Also, if a player starts their turn, they have at most two hours to finish it, otherwise it finishes automatically. This stop players from starting their turning then walking away and causing a 24 hour delay.

The biggest problem on the site is players who join games then don't show up. If a player misses two turns in a row though, they are kicked out of the game. So quite a few games are slow for rounds 1 and 2, then speed up considerably.

There's an FAQ post here that talks about rounds and phases, that should answer most of your questions. Note that games with 5 teams (1 player per team) or any team game with 5 players per team is the slowest, with 5 phases per round.

What game are you referring to, if I may ask? I'll give you a quick breakdown of the rounds and phases to demonstrate what is happening.

Thanks for the response! I was looking at game 2328, but we figured it out. We're loving the game so far, and will spread the word to our friends as well.

Cheers. I have to apologise for reasonably slow development here. I'm just one person, so it can take a while sometimes. But there are a lot of plans for expansion and improvement. Next major step is getting everything mobile ready for an app
