Do you like playing board games, but downtime is killing all the fun? Is somebody in your group taking painfully long to make their turn? Shouting, cursing and begging does not help?

Board Games Stopwatch lets you measure how long does it take for each of the players to make their turn. It does not limit the time for each player, but makes them aware that they are really slow. I have tested it among my friends and the results were really awesome - the total time difference between slowest and the fastest player was less than 10%. Just at the end of each round read out the times!

- Measure total and individual times
- Add as many players as you want
- Change the name and colors by LONG PRESSING the player.
- Simple and clean interface

What's New

Version 1.1

Could be better, but does what I need it to


I'm probably not going to win any fans by timing players at the table. But some folks in my gaming group are in denial regarding how much time they are taking, relative to others, in making decisions/playing their turn. My hope is that proof, in the form of this timer, will get us past the denial stage, through the acceptance phase, and into remedial steps. I don't mind a slower player, until we begin talking about 10+ orders of magnitude :-) This app does what it says and acts as a multiplayer "chess clock". A bit basic/utilitarian, but gets the job done. Thanks to the author!

One item I wish you'd implement (there are many actually but this one is at the top of my list): I need the ability to setup groups of people that I can retrieve. Currently, I am forced to delete/add people and/or rename folks every time the group changes. I'd like stored sets of players that I can just load.
