  Game clock - Chesspedia, The Free Chess Encyclopedia Pushedpawn.org
Game clocks are used in two-player games where the players move in turn.
Game clocks were first used extensively in tournament chess, and are often referred to as "chess clocks," but their use has since been adopted for tournament Scrabble, Shogi, Go, and nearly every competitive two-player board game.
It is not rare in slow chess games for a player to leave the table, but the clock of the absent player continues to run if it is his turn, and/or starts to run if his opponent makes a move.

 Review: Clock Tower   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Clock Tower is, as concerns the history of adventure games on the Playstation, an anomaly.
Even though Clock Tower is perceived as what might be construed as a "slasher" game, it actually relies very heavily on its characters, their personalities, and their reactions to horrific situations.
In fact, this is the only game I can ever remember in which a character stumbles upon a mutilated body and actually falls to her knees and regurgitates in disgust instead of the usual, nonchalant "I stumble upon dead bodies every day" claptrap we are usually fed.

 Game clock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Analog clocks (as pictured to the right) are equipped with a "flag" (a Dutch invention) that falls to indicate the exact moment the player's time has expired.
The drawbacks of the mechanical clocks included accuracy and matching of the two clocks, and matching of the indicators (flags) of time expiration.
