I have a big analogue ticking stopwatch that I click when we start. I then call out a time update every 30 seconds so the group knows how the search is going. When we get to the last 30 seconds I start singing the music from countdown out loud.
Then we all add in the, how important is it that I/PlayingPartner find this ball, correcton factor.
That changes the speed of time in an Einsteinian way :
- Doesnt matter - 3 minutes runs out faster.
- Matters to my opponent but my card is rubbish - time extends to 5 normal earth minutes.
- Its my ball, the Captains prize, I am about to post a winning score, and it will be my best ever - time slows so that the 3 mins now take a standard 8 earth minutes, while the group behind gets increasingly infuriated - time has not slowed down for them unfortunately, and they are tapping their watches to signal this.
