Digital Clocks

Time forms an integral and exciting part of every sport, especially in mind sports and games such as Chess, Go, Draughts (Checkers), Shogi, Stratego, Othello and Scrabble™. The difference in skill and playing strength between players is not only determined by the potential performance level and decisions each individual player takes, but also by the time a player needs to reach this level and to make the decisions. The more a sport is seen as a measure of performance, the more important it is to limit the time a player needs to make a move.

This must be done in a way which is most appropriate for the game and the sport concerned. DGT clocks offer many different methods for the timing of a game. While several methods are well-known, others may be less familiar. Some of these methods have been in use for a long time; others are the result of the possibilities offered by modern electronics. Each timing method has its own charm and each has a different influence on the manner in which a sport is experienced.

In chess the traditional “blitz” game of 5 minutes per person is different from 3 minutes using “Delay” or “Bonus” when every move attracts an extra couple of seconds of thinking time, although the total thinking time for a game may not be much different.

We recommend players experiment with the various methods our game timers offer. It will definitely add an extra dimension to your favorite sport or game.
