Need Time Limit setting for Create New online game

This is hard to believe, but:
Some players may actually have other things to do besides eat, sleep, and play ELWG ;)

Integer input field for number of days per turn.

ok, that didn't go as planned. Most people ask for 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes. :)

I don't think many people will find one turn a day too much trouble tbh and it does fit the standard set by Apple and Google with their own solutions so people will be used to it.

Could perhaps poll your target audience to find out with more certainty. On other turn-based async online games such as chess.com I often select 3 days per turn.

You are the first person of several million to request that from our previous titles and this one. :)

I wouldn't mind but it would add a complication on the server that wouldn't really get used by most people. A 3-day game of elwg could go on for months, by which time we've usually got an update out. :)

Thanks for the replies, makes sense. Some of my chess tournaments have taken multiple months, but sounds like that is a very different audience. Players also get a number of vacation days to stop the timer.
