Please consider adding sound to the initial start count-down.
Silent, waiting for the game to start to realize I missed it, forgot to hit "I'm Ready"
Any sound, an alarm sound, count down sound, actual number count down, whatever you prefer, just something to let me know the game is starting, audibly!
Bump, no love ?
Excellent idea. Everyone should be readying up in the lobby screen, and once everyone readies up, the host should only then be allowed to start the game. They should also implement the countdown-with-sound as you suggested!
...might suggest 188.8.131.52.1, Ten seconds maybe lil too much.
