EXCALIBUR ELECTRONIC GLASS CHESS MODEL 775

Congratulations on your purchase of Excalibur Electronics Electronic Glass Chess! You've purchased both your own personal chess trainer and a partner who's always ready for a game -- and who can improve as you do!

Elegantly designed, Electronic Glass Chess is a functional work of art which highlights each piece on move, marking its path with a glowing, scarlet light. And like the best teachers, Electronic Glass Chess gives you instant, positive feedback by telling you whenever you make a good move. Its 64 adjustable strength levels include four playing styles -- normal, aggressive, defensive, and random -- and ensure a constant challenge.

The legendary King Arthur brandished a magic sword, Excalibur. from which we take our company name. With this unique weapon in his hands, he could not be vanquished.

Although Excalibur Electronics can't claim the magical secrets of Merlin, King Arthur's court wizard, sometimes our patented technology may make it seem as if we could.

Electronic Glass Chess is another unmatched innovation of Excalibur Electronics.

We make you think.
