With Christmas and New Year approaching, what is the general preference for continuing the game given people's availability will be restricted if not already restricted?

Should the game be paused until the new year?

Personally, I don't think it should be "paused" until the new year.

I don't know about others, but I'm on holidays now, and have a "lot" of free time (I really want to run through my unpainted Skorne)
So checking the thread shouldn't be too much of an issue.

I would however, maybe extend the day / night phases by a day or so (even though it pains / bores me)

So, I vote, keep it rolling !

I would recommend against this. Reading the thread it appears that people are losing interest due to the slow pace of the current game as it is.

Might I suggest shortening the night phases in particular a little? There's nothing stopping people from giving you their actions in advance.

Game phases have been really long. If you pause people will lose interest and not come back.

Indeed. :roll:

Also - just changed the title of this thread so as to not confuse it from the game itself.

As a casualty of the game I can't get a full vote, but I'd be very happy to see it continue at a brisk pace. Firstly to get to the bottom of the mystery of who the remainder of the anti-town faction(s) are, and secondly because we are fortunate to have someone planning a game of mafia where everyone gets to where spandex and bright underwear waiting in the wings just behind you.

BTW GF - fascinating game so far. Nice work.

Definitely don't pause it. As has been said the game is going slow enough as is. With the the large player count and extended night phases the game is already pretty slow. Any more and you risk people losing interest.

I don't any reason that a mafia game should be paused. To start with nothing would kill interest quicker than stopping the game and plus with long night phases and a heap of players the game seems like it needs the pace quickened not slowed.
