What I'm looking for is a time clock something similar to a chess clock but with 3-6 clocks instead of two. I need it with some of people I play games with. A game of settlers with just 4 players take like 3 hours. Carcassonne takes an ugly amount of time to finish a game. So something where when it's your turn you hit a button, or something similar, and the person's time clock next to you starts to count down. Then when they are finish they hit their button and the next person's timer starts counting down. Being able to set the time for each person would also be nice.

Is there anything out there like that?

Thanks

I have used them. They have a bit of a learning curve, but they work well.

I had the same problem so I created a free iPhone/iPod touch app for this-- it supports up to 6 players and is very simple to use. Check out "Game MultiTimer Free" on the app store. It's not a great model for something like Settlers of Catan, but it works great for games like Rummikub or scrabble.
