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.)
- 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.
