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 ScrabbleTM.
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.
