Pause button during game#492

if someone needs needs to use the restroom or get a drink from the drinking fountin etc. then press the button so it can be fair to the student who’s playing

I like the idea of being able to pause the whole game as a teacher, sometimes there is an announcement, or an interruption, a pause and freeze option would be excellent

It would be nice to be able to pause a game when we need to at times.

or a pause button on an assignment too…we have a lunch period that cuts our class in half, so if they start an assignment that has a 20 minute time limit, they can’t pause the game, they have to let time run out during lunch and have to start over after lunch. Could be helpful when doing it as HW at home too.

Please add a pause feature for the teacher! We were in fishtopia and I forgot to add the 30 minutes of time for lunch. So the game ended while they were in lunch. It takes so much time to build up your cash that it doesn’t make sense for us to start over after lunch. Please, please, please consider the pause feature. I have noticed that suggestions for a pause feature was made 2 years ago and another 1 year ago. I am surprised you haven’t considered this feature.

I would love a pause feature! It is difficult to make announcements to the class while they are playing Gimkit because it is hard for them to split their focus between the screen and me.

I asked for a pause button three years ago… just thought I would ask again. Sometimes there is a reason the teacher has to pause all activity for a moment, then move on. It would be so helpful.

I would love a pause button for One Way Out. My students love it, but it takes so long to win (they haven’t done it yet). I feel terrible when I have to end the game because we need to go to lunch or PE. It would be great if they could pick up where they left off.

YES!! Having a pause button so we could pause a game in the middle of class to remind students of something would be so helpful!

A pause button is definitely needed in education to check for undestanding.

I think this should he a host/teacher only feature (so that some annoying kid doesn’t spam pause), but this sounds cool! I also think they shouldn’t just freeze in place (boredom), but go to a small room until the teacher/host unpauses the game, then they just return to their spots.
