Fidelity Par Excellence (1986)

Fidelity International, Inc., takes great pride in introducing the newest addition to our line of chess champions - The PAR EXCELLENCE. The PAR EXCELLENCE WAS SUBMITTED TO THE COMPUTER RATING AGENCY OF THE UNITED STATES CHESS FEDERATION, AND AFTER THOROUGH AND RIGOROUS TESTING AGAINST RATED TOURNAMENT PLAYERS WAS AWARDED AN OFFICIAL U.S.C.F. RATING OF 2100. This rating ranks the Par Excellence above 95% of tournament chess players.

It has been our intention with this product to provide you with a value beyond comparison -- a truly excellent chess program in an extremely affordable housing. We feel confident that this microprocessor-based chess opponent will challenge and delight you now and for years to come.
