Can I give my opponent more time?
Can I give my opponent more time?
Updated over a week ago

If you are playing a game with a friend and they suddenly have to get up to deal with a crying baby, or maybe you're trying to play a practice game and want to give more time to teach a lesson, either way, if you are playing against a friend you can add more time with the click of a button!

If you are playing a game with someone who you have added as a friend on Chess.com, you'll see an extra button in your menu, next to the forward and back move buttons:

Simply click this button once to add 15 seconds to your opponent's clock!

You can click as many times as you like and keep adding time to your opponent's clock.

This option is only available in games against people on your friends list!

Note: If this is a rated game, the game will still be rated, even after giving your opponent more time.
