Well, ideal for OTB play would be an electronic board that is connected to the clock and can tell exactly when one moves and tally how long it takes. Such technology will be commonplace soon. Do Fischer clocks have a control to tally time expended on each move? This aspect [of 10 Minute Melee] must be tested before evaluating. The mandate to move quickly each turn makes the variant even more sporting than the mandate to make all the moves within ten minutes. I rate this variant as excellent because I consider it groundbreaking in the area of temporal variant work.
