I was looking at the KS page when I've noticed the timer in the components break down.

In a time where most people have a cell phone, it also means you have a timer in your pocket....so what's the point ?

I mean, if you have access to the internet to make a pledge on KS, chances are you have a phone with a timer.

I don't know the manufacturing cost of that particular component, but I'd rather have another double-sided map instead.

Because, to be honest, the lonely double-sided board is the only thing holding me back at the moment.

I know, there will probably be a stretch goal for another board, but the timer will still be useless.

Escape had a CD and app, that was fine since you needed to know when to rush to the center tile or the exit, but here it's just a 2 minutes timer without any advice to tell you time's running out, adding to the pressure, what the game is all about.

I'm glad it comes with a timer. Sure alot of people have timers on their phone, but we always have issues with dead phones or someone not having a timer.

The timer will be far cheaper than a board. I can get timers for $2 at a flea market.

Since people need to keep track of time, we need to provide to everyone who will get his hands on the game the option to play the game without anything else (even a mobile phone).
Every single component needed in order to play in the game, should be included in the game box in all games.

A soundtrack would also be nice, it's a cool idea meeple

I'm glad they included the timer. I hate games that leave out key components, trusting the gamers will have it.

Dice? You didn't tell me to bring dice???

....yeah, I hate it when THAT happens.

And I still don't have a phone since mine broke down a year ago. I'm happy to be without most of the time...

Our Golden house rule:

No phones or drinks at the gaming table.

So glad a timer is included.

Games should always come with all the necessary components required to play them out of the box. That is reason enough for its inclusion.
