What is it?

 

 

FairTime is a kind of chess chronometer allowing up to five players.

 

It records how much time any player really plays, makes statistics and indicates who’s next to play.

 

 

 

 

Use it

 

 

When the game begins, the first player presses the green button; this starts the chronometer. When the actual player is done, he presses the green button thus starting the next player’s playing time and so on.

 

At the end of the game, the last player presses the red button stopping the chronometer and makes it display all statistics.

 

 

 

 

Inside

 

FairTime is made of two distinct parts: hardware & software.

 

As the hardware looks like something you can see hereunder, software offers flexibility.
