We’re playing a game among friends who all know each other. We have a meta conversation thread on facebook where we all heckle each other about the game, especially who has and hasn’t submitted turns. We don’t want to give away our game identities (we’re having a great time staying in character and not knowing who the other is) but we want to make sure to heckle people who haven’t submitted their turns in a timely fashion.
That said, I think an option for “blind turn submission” would be hugely beneficial for situations like this. What I mean is, instead of check marks next to people who have submitted turns, put a number of people who have submitted (“5 of 8”, or something). That way we can all check in and say that we’ve submitted without worrying about our game identities being revealed. It may not be a super common use case, but it would be useful for “LAN party” type games where everyone knows everyone else IRL.
