WHAT IS A CHESS COMPUTER?

A chess computer is a traditional board and pieces operating with electronic circuits which respond to the position of the pieces on the board. An advantage of the computer is that you can play chess against it when a human opponent is not available; you can play at any time, as often as you like. You can even switch off in the middle of a game and start again later; the computer will remember exactly where all the pieces are, even when it is switched off.

You must not think that you have no chance against the computer. It has many different levels of skill. If you start off by playing on the lowest level, you should find that as you get used to playing the computer, you will learn more about the game and have a good chance of winning. As you improve and want a more challenging game, you simply increase the level of skill.
