ChessClock

Chessclock lets a computer (ideally a laptop) replace a traditional chess clock sitting next to a chess board.

(OK, actually there’s nothing chess-specific about it. It can be used to time-limit any two-player game.)

FEATURES

  • Fullscreen view showing two big digital clocks.
  • Set different time limits for each player.
  • Turn counting.
  • Optionally return some time to a player’s clock after each turn.
  • ChessClock is Free Software and costs $0.

HOW TO GET IT

Download the latest Chessclock.

DEPENDENCIES

Requires Ruby and Ruby bindings for GTK+ and Glade.

Ubuntu users can get everything they need with:

sudo apt-get install ruby libgtk2-ruby libglade2-ruby
