The Best Electronic Chess Game

This electronic chess game can teach players how to achieve check-mate in eight moves, a feature that earned it the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute's Best rating. The game was play-tested by the University of Chicago Chess Team and found to be superior to other models because of its accuracy of level of play. The team's players indicated that its hints function was the easiest to follow of all the play-tested models--it offers a comprehensive coaching system that includes eight built-in classical mate studies, allowing players to select between hint, training, and referee modes. This game has a United States Chess Federation rating of 2,320, an opening book of 8,900 half-moves, and 128 training and tournament levels, yet despite the game's "Master" rating, the chess team found it to have The Best training mode. The chess team also found the game's take-back function that allows beginners to correct weak or wrong moves to be a key feature, along with its convenient carrying case and game piece storage compartment. Hand-carved wooden Staunton pieces. Requires six C batteries. Chessboard 9" sq. (4 lbs.)
