    Anyone for a game? (Lighty - Goughfather) [0-1 by exceeding time limit]

    Name times for moves and color preference.

    I'll play.

    My colour preference is red, just to fit in with declarations by Jono about my political leanings. If that is not possible, I'll let you start, unless you had a particular fetish for black which would require me to take the initiative and play the first move.

    Not in America though, where you are more "blue state". And (false) declarations by GF about my leanings would have me avoiding black.

    5 minutes per player.

    (btw, the match was decided in whites favour 1 hour and 37 minutes ago.)

    It is totally up to the players. You can agree a number of days per move e.g.

    Just wrap the moves with (pgn)the moves go here(/pgn).

    Replace the ('s and )'s with ['s and ]'s.

    If this were a blitz game Black could have decided against claiming the win and settled for the win of a piece.
