Team Chess

About Team Chess

Team Chess is a newer chess format, during which players of two teams compete. The general format is as follows:

  • Two teams with a minimum of five players compete. One reserve per team will be allowed.
  • The time limit per team will be determined before every competition. A comfortable time limit is 20 minute a side.
  • The team members stand behind one another in such a manner that everyone is able to see the chess board.
  • The front player of the team playing white moves the first chess piece, presses the chess clock and stands in the queue.
  • The front player of the opponents (black pieces) moves next, presses the clock and stands in the queue.
  • The second, third, fourth and fifth players follow the pattern.
