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.

If you pause it because it lunch or something and you have to close the device wouldn’t it just loose connection? But other thatn that good idea.

Not sure if Gimkit is used in contexts other than education, but what is meant by the pause button is for the educator to have control of it to pause it at times to check for the students understanding. I think it is critical in education!!

hmm that’s a good thinking mrs. teacher but people would start to overuse it after a while like people used tag domination ton grind on xp. But still i think that it would be smarter for only the host to use it. It would be fair also if you could have a certain amount of times to use the pause button.
ex: 1-3 times per game.
