We congratulate you on the purchase of your new SAITEK KASPAROV TRAVELLER! This pocket-sized chess whiz offers a unique combination of exciting chess performance and portability. It is also extremely easy to operate, registering all moves automatically on its built-in sensor board. Intended for beginners and intermediate players, TRAVELLER has 34 level/setting combinations (playing levels, non-auto, sound) including 16 different playing levels with 7 unique “fun” levels, where the computer makes some very human errors. Playing against TRAVELLER on these levels will teach you more about chess, and will allow even beginners to win against the computer! Along with 6 regular playing levels, this computer also offers a special puzzle level, and infinite level, and a mate search level specifically designed for solving mate problems!

This compact unit also allows you to take back up to 3 full moves, lets you play against another person while it acts as referee, and you can even watch it play against itself! Plus save your current game when switching off, and snap on the plastic cover to keep your pieces in place. Then take TRAVELLER anywhere, knowing that you can resume your game at any time. When you are ready to pick up where you left off, simply snap off the clear plastic cover, switch the computer on and continue with your game!

This is the ideal computer for those who want to play the exciting game of chess anywhere, without having to carry around a large board. After all, we called it TRAVELLER for exactly that reason! So go out, have fun, and be sure to take your new companion with you wherever you go!
