    Anytime Chess.....hmmmm.  Simple.  Erik you may be on to something!!

  • #142

    In the summer turn on your AC.

  • #143

    Quite like '' Anytime Chess '' also. That is simple & terse. Definitely one of the better suggestions. Also is more modern than '' correspondence-chess '' so appropriate given the rising-popularity of chess on i-phones etc..

    Because in other forms there's no moving or waiting?

    That strikes me as the worst choice.

    Nothing wrong with anytime-chess. Means the game is there to play or leave whenever you want (within game-settings of course 3-day, 5-day, 7-day...)

    Correspondence chess has a long and dignified history. Some folks don't like tradition, so they invent something new that doesn't work.

    There's a saying in my culture (rural, western, Euro-American): if it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's how it was with correspondence chess, or to be more precise server based correspondence chess, before this site invented a new name, online chess.

    When I tell folks about one of my online games on this site I usually need to explain that it's a form of correspondence chess that has an unusual name on this site. Then, they usually get it.

    A good name doesn't need to be explained to a chess player who is already familiar with different sorts of chess. There is exactly one name for what I play here that I do not need to explain to these many chess playing friends.
