Howdy Folks -

Just curious if anyone has tried using small 'hour glasses' (maybe 20- or 30-second jobbers) as part of each players' turn. Play a card, flip the timer, your description must carry on with no further cards being played until the timer is ready to flip?

Looking for ways to slow down the pace and (hopefully) encourage more attention to the story than the machine-gun card effect.

I wouldn't bother using an exact timer, but we have noticed the machine-gun effect you're talking about sauron

In my group I always encourage the others players to appraise the story and avoid the machine gun card.

We have a rule that could be summarised as "you must keep the story moving for 15 seconds before you play a second card". We don't stick strictly to that, but if someone machine guns, we call "too fast", and make them keep the story moving. We also give a one-card penalty for inappropriate interrupts.
