Is there pie?

Why not? 

Because I'm mostly disliked around here. Figured it might be like school where I was the only kid not allowed on the field trips.

 

Not that I want to play....just wanted to know if I could.

In, scoobus.

I was probably around 1300 when I last played 2 years ago, I'm sure I'll dominate.

Conference next week, so no way I could do this starting off.  But if you need a replacement after that Tim let me know.

In.  Psychopav.

Hey Tim, could you list the Chess Time user names next to the FBG user names in the first post?  TIA.

I also vote to start at the end of next week, if Sand could make it work that way.

The way it's been going lately you should be begging to play me. You have a win and a draw in our last three games...

I would play but appears chesstime is an app for a phone.  If it went to my computer I could use it.  I don't use my cell hardly at all but if you email me your move I can respond immediately.  If that's a pain I understand.  No big deal either way.   I do the training puzzles on lichess but haven't played anyone in years.  For the puzzle rating I'm 1522, whatever that means.

Android emulator?  Simple to download and then you can get Chess Time and Angry Birds and Temple Run and play to your heart's content. :)

Your last sentence might be the reason for your first sentence.

You joined in 2009 and this is your first post.  No wonder I regularly fixed you a plate in the LoEGPFFL. :P

What about you, @geoff8695?  You interested?

Sorry.

No can do buck-a-roo, way too hectic/busy/stressed/remaining leisure time dedicated to my boardgaming hobby/addiction...

Bump. We have 14, which is a workable number, but let's see if we can get any more.

If this starts Friday or later I can do it.  Until then I'm consumed.

It probably won't start until Friday. 

Id love to have you but then I need one more at least to give us an even count.

No sweat.  Put me in the bullpen for when someone has to drop out.  That'd be fine.

Let's see if we can get at least one more though. I'd actually like 5-6 more, 20 is perfect.

Someone should pm the guys who haven't checked in yet but post in the Chess thread.

I mean, not me.  I'm far too lazy.  But someone should.

How many moves are expected a day?  How often during a work day?  Every 4 hours? Every hour?  Every 15 minutes?

Shuke it doesn't work that way. All  I can say is that most rounds take 2-3 days, sometimes 3-4 days. If all games in a round except one is completed, and that one game is still in it's beginning or middle stages, then it's unfair to everybody else. So just like driving you have to stay with the flow of traffic. If you're uncomfortable with that, or if you can't commit to speeding up your game once most people are finished in a round, then this tournament is not for you. Otherwise you're very welcome.

In each tournament we've had there have been players ranging from great to beginner level. The only way to get good is to keep playing.

As far as the speed of games, one thing that can help is to use the app's chat feature and communicate.  If a game is going slowly, telling your opponent, for example, "I'm going to be busy in a meeting all afternoon but I will be free to make several moves tonight."
