The new chess.com is going to be awesome !

RaleighRaine

Definitely! I'm really excited myself. :) I heard there's going to be Live Bughouse and new time controls! Yay!

What is this talk of new time controls?  You can already set custom time controls in live chess.

RaleighRaine

Well, that's just what I've heard...but, as you said, since you can do custom time controls in Live chess, someone might have gotten confused.

Maybe with the option of adding delay instead of increment?

Where did you find all this out? Sorry if it is obvious and I missed it

baddogno

Longer standard time controls were mentioned by Erik in his TV show.

no its when your team mate captures a piece you take the piece that he captured and put it any where on the board.

Pieces dropping like bugs in a house.

Oh thank you it's called tvískák in Icelandic :) or two players chess. I've played it over the board and one time I won (with my partner) a bughouse chess tournament in Iceland!
