2. Choose Game Details

Game type: ? Choose between standard chess or Fischer Random - where the pieces start in a random configuration.
Ratings: ? Unrated games are more causual as they do not affect either player's rating.
Time control: ? Time Control - Number of days allowed to make each move.    Upgrade to access all time controls
Number Of Games: ? Choose the number of games to play with the same opponent. If you select 2 or more games, the colours are set to 'Alternating' (equal numbers of black/white).     Your Colour:  ? Do you want to play with the white pieces or the black pieces? As white has a slight advantage (by moving first) it is considered unfair to play an excess of games as white. By choosing 'Automatic' the system will try to allocate you equal numbers of games with each colour over time.
If you choose a number of games greater than 1, then 'Alternating' colours (equal white/black) is automatically selected.
