Chafitz Sargon 2.5 Game Module (1979)

In December, 1978 an improved SARGON II competed in the 9th ACM North American Computer Chess Championships. There he took on the giants of the computer chess world. In an electrifying fourth round game SARGON defeated Awit, a program running on a five million dollar AHMDAL computer. SARGON tied for third place in that event.

Your new MODULAR GAME SYSTEM brings you SARGON 2.5; improved over its astonishing performance against multimillion dollar machines. SARGON should provide you with countless hours of chess excitement.
