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.
Excalibur Electronic Glass Chess has 64 adjustable strength levels, 16 different levels of difficulty (with 3 special levels) can be combined with four modes of play -- normal, aggressive, defensive and random.
Electronic Glass Chess offers 4 different playing styles on each of the 16 levels of difficulty.
- NORMAL - The computer will concentrate equally on attacking and defending.
- AGGRESSIVE - The computer will concentrate on attacking the opponent and will normally avoid exchanging pieces if possible.
- DEFENSIVE - The computer will concentrate on building a solid defensive position, it will make many pawn moves, and it will normally exchange pieces whenever possible.
- RANDOM - The computer will make many pawn moves and will sometimes make a strange move rather than always playing the best move.
