@Frank Grimes, have you decided how you are going to bring these players in or just push up from the League C with a few dropping out?

I am quite happy with the 2 games a week, daily move format, it means I can do it at my leisure and everyone pretty much finished on time.

If folk want more quicker games, they can play friendlies.

Not yet, I’ll try and figure it out this week

Maybe they can all submit formal applications to be voted on by the existing league members?

Happy with the daily format but put me in the one game a week column. With lockdown on, I've got a fair amount of time to spend thinking about chess but even then, some weeks it felt like I was spending a huge amount of time just looking at chess boards and thinking of moves. Given lockdown's hopefully on the slow road out, I feel like two games a week would be a lot for me.

I'm with you on this - after the Easter holidays the 6 weeks up to the start of June are horrendous for us - all I'll be doing is marking and cross-marking.

I've retired undefeated in the top league* and won it. There's nothing more left for me to achieve.

Beating me?

Maybe we need a Supercup?

Lower league fodder. New Gretna IMO.

I'd keep the current format, works fine for me and find myself playing a few other games through the week once they're done.

Also, if anyone wants a friendly, hit me up. DieHardDoonhamer

I'd be interested if there's a spare spot, even if it means starting off in a new Lowland league. If the new spaces are already taken then no probs.

You haven't lost to me yet. You can't retire before that.

2 fixtures a week, posted on Fridays. 24 hours per turn.

I think 2 fixtures a week is fine. If people are unable to get to their fixtures on time then it's fine to let the fixtures pile up, shirley? The leagues haven't suffered from finishing out of sync or with people taking longer to finish games.

I'm loath to downplay the seriousness of the Chess League as well but it shouldn't really matter if you're forced to make your moves with a few minutes or, say, half an hour's thought. The big hitters are still on average going to see off the diddies.
