MEPHISTO BISTRO Electronic Chess Computer.

MEPHISTO BISTRO was sold in Red, Yellow and Black.

Congratulations on your purchase of the new MEPHISTO BISTRO! This computer will always be ready to play whenever you are -- and it can even teach you more about chess as you play!

    MAIN MEPHISTO BISTRO GAME CHARACTERISTICS:

    • Knows chess rules; an ideal opponent for beginners and occasional players.
    • 16 levels of play.
    • Take back up to 6 half moves.
    • Game Memory - The computer remembers the current position for up to 2 years (with fresh alkaline batteries). When you switch it on again, it will continue to play your game.
    • Book Openings -- At the beginning of a game, the computer's reply is usually very fast on Level 1 through 6, because the computer is playing moves which are stored in its book openings.
    • Solves Mate-in-4 chess problems.
