When heavy thinking stalls your board game, let Board Game Timer call out those snail's pacing players and give them a friendly nudge.
Keeps track of up to 8 players in 2 modes:
Count up - simply count up each player's time, no stress!
- or -
Countdown - set a time limit for each player.
And it has a dice to pick a random starting player too!
Smaller improvements and fine-tuning to further aid snail's pacing board games.
And by popular demand, a subtle way to order players.
Ratings and Reviews
Simple and straightforward
3 things would improve this significantly:
1. Ability to select the colors in any order so that turns move logically from one player to the next from left to right.
2. Ability to add names to each color.
3. Ability to add time for each turn when in countdown mode (so that each turn adds another 20 seconds to the clock, for example.). Player order would be important for this.
It’s your turn!!! Hurry up!
Great for board games. I downloaded a half dozen different apps looking for one like this. So glad I kept looking - this is exactly it!
We like to “count up” instead of set a timer and we add a rule to all our games where the player with the shortest time gets a bonus (10 points) and the longest time pays a penalty (-10). Use with any game, but some lend themselves more easily to timing (Carcassone, Ticket to Ride, Catan, etc...)
Very elegant and simple design. It would be great to have a list of what the overall time was as well, for example time during the game that no one was taking a turn etc. I’m very impressed with this timer though. Thank you!
