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.
