Time For Move
« on: December 09, 2011, 09:09:01 AM »
Me and another player which name i cannot remember were playing and we have agreed that sometimes the time is not sufficient. I was thinking if it would be possible someway to choose how many time for move
I was thinking in something like that:

Fast: 0:50
Normal: 1:30
Long: 3:00

Players could choose one of the 3 before the game start.
If the two players disagree with the time, the game would be normal. I like it, and doesn`t look hard to implement.
Someone have another idea? Something that would allow old players to play longer games?

I think that there are only a few turns when you need more time. so I think that the solution would be a time bank like in poker. It is a time pool, and when your normal turn is over you use from this. 1,5 or 2 extra minutes would be enough.

I would not want to increase the default time because it would slow the game down.  However there would not be any harm in having an option that if both players agreed would increase the time per turn.
