Guidance for setting up a Live Game.
1. Advertise first! Make sure you have enough interested people to set the game up.
2. Place the date and proposed start time (including time zone) in the title of the post.
3. Post details of the game - game type, length of live period, whether the game will end when the live period does, after-live deadlines if not, etc.
4. Update the first post regularly to reflect changes, players, etc.
5. Players should be on the Forum approximately 30 minutes before the game starts and should post in the thread that they are ready. Check the game thread REGULARLY and don't leave the site!
6. Include in the game description that it is live!
7. Should a player NOT turn up, remember others can see the game on the home page of the games site - a replacement MAY be found.

Pausing a Live game?

Postby rocketvat » 22 Aug 2020, 19:30

Hi, I'm hosting a live game for friends soon and someone just gave us notice that they won't be able to stay the entire session.

We're willing to break up our Live game into two sessions using the Pause function, but I was worried that pausing the game past the 6 hour "live game" timer would make it so it resumed using 12 hour turns.

Can anyone clarify exactly how pausing interacts with the live game rules?

Thanks!

The Live game simply works from the time it starts and the length. You can't 'store up' time by Pausing it. So if you start a game at 6pm for 3 hour Live period and Pause it after an hour, it still moves to a non-live game at 9pm.
