FIDELITY CHESS CHALLENGER 7  MODEL BCC ELECTRONIC CHESS COMPUTER

By means of the science of microprocessors, a miniaturized computer implanted in a solid state system within the game analyzes each position. After considering all possible chess moves, the computer makes a decision which it has determined to be the best available move.

MAIN FIDELITY CHESS CHALLENGER 7 MODEL BCC GAME CHARACTERISTICS

 

RANDOM PLAY

When a choice of advantageous moves is available, CHESS CHALLENGER will choose a move at random, so that each and every game will be different. With the combination of random play and selected moves, you should enjoy many hours of exciting chess play.

BOOK OPENINGS

CHESS CHALLENGER possesses a broad vocabulary of book openings (e.g. Sicilian, French, Ruy Lopez, Queen Gambit Declined). When following a patterned book opening the computer will signal its patterned response with a single beep tone. The computer will continue to follow a patterned book response until the player departs from the pattern or attempts to enter an illegal move.

SOLID STATE

Turning the game OFF or pressing the RE Key automatically resets the program. For lengthy games, leave the game ON, as CHESS CHALLENGER is all solid state and is designed to be left ON for days or weeks, as desired.
