Online graph avoidance games in random graph

Consider the following one-player game on a random graph: Starting with the empty graph on n vertices, the edges of Kn appear one by one uniformly at random, and the player has to color them immediately ('online') either red or blue. Her goal is to avoid creating a monochromatic copy of a fixed forbidden graph F as long as possible. How many edges can she typically color? For a large class of graphs F, in particular for cliques of arbitrary size, we show that the game length exhibits a threshold behaviour as n tends to infinity.
