This is a simple (quick and messy) chess timer. The code demonstrates a use of pygame's userevents (they are fired to update the timer)

Hi:) Nice idea, I had the same before and I made this:

It works in a little bit different - you specify a time before you run a clock. And from prectice I see, that if you have to hit one specified key while you have 15 sec to the end and you are almost under mat is quite difficult:D So I decide to use left half of keaboard for one user and the second one for the othen.

Nevertheless both our clocks are quite usefull:)
