I was thinking of adding a sand timer to the house raids.

Not that it takes long to raid a house, but I feel like it would add more tension and be very thematic.

Any suggestions of what kind of timer I should get? 30 second timer?
I think just by having the timer there, the tension will be there, so I don't think it should be some super fast timer.

I think a 1 minute timer would do the trick. 30 seconds would be very tense, at least for my group. Some players could easily clear a house in 30 seconds, but it's nice to be able to think a little bit (look over available skills, etc.)

I think the timer is an excellent idea for adding some appreciated tension and avoiding analysis paralysis, which this game is very prone to. Might try it out myself.

That's too much dough unless it's murder. And if it's murder, it's not enough.

Like the idea. Would be interested in the results on the best length.

I seldom play with AP types, but yes, timers are a solid solution in some games.
