Gunboat Games - Initial Waiting Period

Postby gunboat433 » 08 Dec 2018, 15:49

Hi - Given there is no press between players during Gunboat games, why not shorten the initial period to the regular turn length on Gunboat to get the game going, instead of having a 2X waiting period for Spring 1901? Ie 24 hour game = 24 hour turn for S01, not 48 hours. There isn't anyone out there to talk to anyway!!

Thx, love the site.

Hello Again - signed up for a gunboat recently and noticed the initial waiting period for S01 orders is still double the normal turn duration? Thanks, GB33

Ah...I finally checked, sorry I forgot the first time. I see the change was never made :o

It might be my memory though. What I will do is raise a new poll to check this is what people want (and to warn them). Assuming (as I expect) players agree, I will make the change. Thanks for your persistence :)
