if he was a better prop better he could have likely gotten himself a 2 hour clock and Curtains a 5 min clock.
I don't think it would help that much. Curtains can think while he's not on move. That helps a ton, if he was a GREAT prop better he's take a 2 hour clock but make Curtains stand behind a "CURTAIN" (hahaha..) when not on move...
But actually that would not help tons either, he's still be able to review the game blindfolded...
How about this... blindfolded, and he isn't told durrr's move unless it involves a capture.
