Your KASPAROV CHESS SHADOW chess computer is a highly unusual and unique machine - one you are going to enjoy immensely! Never before has a chess computer been so portable, so much fun, and so easy to learn. Once you start carrying this game around with you, you and your Shadow will soon be inseparable!

 

MAIN SAITEK KASPAROV CHESS SHADOW MODEL 116 GAME CHARACTERISTICS

 

The computer has a large, clear LCD display which shows the chessboard and move information, and Chess Shadow's distinctive keys, make this man versus machine set-up absolutely foolproof! Upon request, the computer shows all pieces which you can legally move in any position. Select your piece, and it shows all legal moves that piece can make!

Chess Shadow is an ideal tutorial tool for players who are trying to learn about chess, since it shows every available move in any given position. You don't even need to know how to play chess to play against the computer -- just press the buttons and you are automatically playing the game! KASPAROV CHESS SHADOW is truly the first chess computer to be suitable for anyone, at any age!

Other features are also included for the more advanced player, such as a special Turbo Mode which allows fast scanning of all legal moves. Non-Auto Mode gives you the ability to either play against another person, or to enter a series of move manually and then play against the computer (e.g. to study a particular opening of your choice). Your KASPAROV CHESS SHADOW has 16 different levels, including regular playing levels (with varying degrees of difficulty), fun (handicap) levels designed especially for beginners, and problem and puzzle solving levels for more serious chess study.

You may take back moves, and even watch as the computer considers different move options during it’s turn. Plus, save your current game position simply by switching to STOP. When you are ready to pick up where you left off, switch to GO and continue with your game!

KASPAROV CHESS SHADOW is the ideal chess opponent and partner - this computer will be your constant companion for years to come, both at home and on the road!
