What do you all think about whether or not it's ok to interrupt a player mid-answer to accuse someone (probably that player) of being the spy?

We had a situation in a game tonight in which I was the spy, and I asked my brother a question. He was taking quite a long time to answer, was being a bit evasive and generally stumbling about a bit, so I immediately called a vote, knowing that I was the spy. Everyone voted for him to be the spy so I won, but I wonder, was that really fair?

We talked about it a bit afterwards, and the consensus was pretty much "never mind fair, it was fun", but still.... It'd be nice to get some opinion, if not official decision - can you pause the game and call a vote whilst someone else is in the middle of their answer? For that matter, can you call a vote instead of answering yourself?

Seems to be the way the app works. We play it that way. You can only call for a vote one time, but you can do it any time.

I hope you can interrupt, else my being the spy is just a question if I can filibuster the clock...

I agree with people: the game risks grinding to a halt if people can't be accused during an answer, and it also seems both a fun and reasonable thing to do.

Similarly though less commonly, I reckon it's also fine to accuse someone during a question.

Thanks all. This is a great point:

which pretty much makes it a must that you can interrupt.

That's a good point too. Thanks.
