Chess clock
« on: November 25, 2007, 08:54:26 PM »
When playing chess, there is a chess clock. It is called Move clock. What exactly does the time shown on the move clock mean? If I ask for a game with a one day duration, does that mean that we have one whole day to make one move, or is it two moves - one for me and one for my opponent?
If the game is set to one day, does the move clock reset to one day, each time a move is made?

Should be 1 move per person per day.

OK. got it.
Is there any special method of castling. I tried moving the king 0-0 and it said the K move e-8 to g-8 is not allowed.

Under your name to the right of the chess board, you will see a King's crown and a Queen's crown; these are for castling.  Click the King's crown to castle kingside (O-O) or the Queen's crown to castle queenside (O-O-O).  You'll find this and a lot more useful information about the OCnet version of the game on this thread:  http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,13213.msg181790.html#msg181790

Hello,

What happens if the clock runs down to 0?

Other person wins.  An easy win, but no fun.   :P

After the clock of your opponent runs out, you have to click the command under the chess board to get your win. If you don't click it, I guess your opponent can still make a move. If you do click it, then you get the win.
