What Customers Say

5 stars

"I love playing chess with my kids but sometimes the games seem to take forever. Now I just set the Tempo Game Clock according to the amount of time I have available to play. I actually find I play more, now that I know how long the game will take. The kids have taken more interest too. " Beth M, Aurora, CO
