Estimated rating is approximately 1700 ELO (USCF 1900) based on a couple of test games against a Novag Constellation 3.6 MHz. Results were 1 win and 1 loss.
The levels seem to be very similar in layout and description to Excalibur Electronic’s “Alexandra the Great” and some later models such as The New York Times Deluxe Edition Touch Screen Talking Chess.
