Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

The Game Manual wrote:Twilight works on a 6-day cycle, which consists of 5 weekdays and one weekend day. Twilight actually has a seven-day week just like the rest of us, but it's assumed that one day a week you need to rest, relax, heal, and take care of real-life stuff like visiting friends and family, or spending quality time with your pets. Since your hero isn't doing anything important on that day, it simply doesn't exist in the game, because boy that would be boring! This means that during the five weekdays (Sunday, Moonday, Thewsday, Winsday, and Starsday) there is also a limit to how late you can stay up: 7 a.m. Even if your bedtime would normally extend beyond that point, at 7 you have to go home, clean up, and get ready for work. It's a shame, but that's just the way the world works. (Your extra time will roll over to the next day, though.) The exception to this rule is Frayday night, when you can stay out as long as you want because the following day is a weekend.

You don't get free turns because of Frayday, you simply get to use all the turns you have.

This, entirely. People would create an account and let it sit for the next fun holiday, and then play ten thousand turns farming for limited-edition stuff. Or splurge on turns when new content comes out, multiplying the traffic on exciting days by many times. I don't have issues with lag at the moment (thank goodness) but this would surely create it, and make things much worse when things do start to lag.
