One Computer, four challenging games -- portable fun at its best!

  • Easy to learn and play. With sensory game board and large LCD display window!
  • Many customized playing levels for each individual game!
  • Verify pieces, take back moves, play against a friend as the computer referees and more!
  • Great for travel!

RADIOSHACK 4-IN-1 CHESS & CHECKERS MAIN CHARACTERISTICS:

      • SPECIAL SENSORY PLAYING SURFACE -- the computer senses a move when you press a piece against a square.
      • INTEGRATED TRAVEL CASE -- lets you carry the computer and all its pieces almost anywhere.
      • TEACH MODE -- you can set the computer so it acts as a referee while you play head-to-head against another person. Beginning users can quickly select and play only specific pieces, to learn the pieces’ moves and strategic uses.
      • MOVE SUGGESTION -- lets you ask the computer to suggest your next move, teaching you the best response to an opponent’s move.
      • LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY -- alternately shows the current move, piece position, and elapsed game time information.
      • 64 CHESS PLAY LEVELS -- let you match the level of difficulty to your skill level.
      • SELECTABLE SEARCH ALGORITHMS -- let you set the computer to search only for a chess move most likely to be successful, speeding up the computer’s response.
      • TAKE BACK -- lets you take back and replay moves to help you improve your game.
      • RULE ENFORCEMENT -- the computer prevents illegal moves like a game referee, to help beginners learn the rules.
      • POWER OFF OPTION -- lets you turn off the computer without interrupting the game in progress, so you can continue playing later.
      • PLAY KEY -- lets you change sides with the computer, force the computer to make a move, or learn by watching the computer play itself.
      • POSITION VERIFICATION -- lets you check the current position of the pieces in case you accidentally knock them over.
