Audible ping for new messages and start of your turn

  • Huge numbers of actions in Catan get an accompanying sound, but the two that I'd find most useful aren't there:

    1. New messages - there's a small visual indicator but often I'm so intent on the board I don't notice it for several turns, and then it's out of context, or I'm too late to usefully reply.

    2. Start of my turn - especially when previous players have been sooooo sloooow I'm sometimes tempted to multitask by checking Twitter or something, but I don't want to risk then missing my turn too. Or perhaps they're actually being so slow because they're multitasking and didn't notice it's their turn, so the ping could alert them and help the game move faster.
