Ephraim Kishon wrote: “Yes the first cheerful chess computer. Plays not bad at all, but cannot keep its trap shut. After all I sit inside him.”

Ephraim Kishon was a Jewish Hungarian satirical writer whose books were extremely popular in Germany but were also sold in many other languages. His German voice and vocabulary was used in the Fidelity Kishon Chesster computer. Ephraim Kishon died in 2005.

KISHON CHESSTER is a German speaking Fidelity chess computer with the voice of the famous German chess amateur player Ephraim Kishon. Just like the English speaking CHESSTER used in the Fidelity CHESSTER range of computers, the commentaries are often very humorous and very interactive.

Comments such as “The Cheapest Chess Computer Can Play Better Than You” or “I Cannot Think Of A Reason Why I Should Be Giving You Hints” are commonly spoken by the computer providing you lots of entertainment as you play a match.

Of course this is all meant to be light hearted fun and with a playing strength of ELO 2000 USCF, KISHON CHESSTER will also provide most amateur chess players a tough challenge and years of enjoyment. But, it does of course help if you can understand German!

KISHON CHESSTER is also designed to assist you and there are plenty of options and levels which you can use to develop and improve your play.
