    Team Vote Chess

    Quote Originally Posted by Chess.com
    Vote Chess is a game played by multiple players on different sides where each player casts a vote to try and determine the final move. Then the move with the most votes is played. Some Vote Chess games consist of 1/2 of Chess.com Members vs. the other 1/2 of Chess.com Members. In this mode players are randomly assigned to a team. Another mode allows all Chess.com Members to play against ONE player such as a Grandmaster or other notable player.

    How do I play Vote Chess?
    To play Vote Chess simply go to the game you want to play while you are logged in and you will automatically be assigned to a team! You can join a game at any point during the game. Once you are assigned a team you can then make your move and submit it to the voting. Once time is up moves are tallied up and the move is made. You can discuss the entire game in the PUBLIC forum, or discuss strategies in the TEAM forums.

    Can I use computers or outside help in my Vote Chess game?
    No

    For those who have never played team based correspondence chess, it's when two teams share a private chat with each other and democratically vote for which move they want to play next. They're allowed to talk about whatever they want in the chat as long as no chess engines are used to tell them right or wrong moves. I'll create two private game threads for you to discuss the moves and stategies you want to take, or you can move it all over to a discord chat.

    Periods of each move will be 48 hours, after that time I'll update the thread with the move the majority voted for. For tied votes, the move will be decided randomly between the top two (or more, please if you're voting democratically don't have a chaos of 5 different picks).

    Typical time I'll update the moves will be at 6pm EST, and will adjust an hour if we go long enough for the hour change of DST. I'll be randing the teams on August 1st, make sure to let me know if you want to be paired with other users on the same team. Players may join after the game has started, and you'll be randomly added to one of the teams.

    Also, to help give teams similar levels of players (all across the board) you may fill out this link. Not necessary, but always helpful.

    So each team will have 48 hours to post their move, wait 48 hrs to see the opposing team to make a move, then an additional 48 hrs to make their next move, or each team will submit a move once every 96 hrs.

    I can/will make cycles longer if a large number of players request for that to happen.

    But I can't guarantee to be around every move. In fact, I most certainly won't.

    Suggestion:
    Even just a 30 move game would last 2 months.
    I think it should be allowed to join the game midway?


    I'm surprised so many have no trouble with annotation tbh.

    30 move game would last 4 months, and op says you can join the game midway so already got that covered

    Vote chess doesn't do early moves because of its democratic process.

    Will rand teams Saturday, at that point white will have 48 hrs to vote on their first move. Can change to 24 hrs if they want.

    Not everyone needs to vote on a move in a position, as long as someone is sending a move when it's their team's turn it will be satisfactory, not everyone needs to camp the moves. I'll likely slot maybes on part of the teams after I setup the rest of the teams for balance.

    I'll post a board for every position here in thread. Trash talking is allowed if you want to.

    Not generally opposed to join, but...

    - I feel like the strongest players will neccessarily dominate the discussions if they play (rendering weaker player's ideas moot in the process) and

    - If you rand all good players into one team, issues will happen.

    Are there plans to circumvent both of these?

    Yeah we could probably know beforehand who wins if we knew everyone's playing strengths.
    Luckily we don't, so it's a game.

    I'll be trying to separate teams so it's relatively balanced with strongest separated (though, there might be a hidden player that I don't know rating of). Vote chess is a discussion + vote method, so at the worst people can learn why a move doesn't work.

    Okay, I will join. If enough players want to join I'd propose splitting everyone up into two groups based on playing strength and then further into four teams, so that everyone's ideas will be heard in their respective team.

    Here's the partially randomized teams. With the survey I took I broke ratings into 400 point ranges, then split the groups of similar levels apart so there's an equal balance of players from both sides.

    Will create private threads for the teams, as well as channels in the discord server if you haven't joined it yet. https://discord.gg/WYDRRBusEA

    First move will come up Tuesday at the latest depending on how many of the white team are suggesting for their move.
