Saitek Travel Companion (1994)

Congratulations on your purchase of the new TRAVEL COMPANION! This computer will always be ready to play whenever you are -- and it can even teach you more about chess as you play!

Just look at Travel Companion’s Exciting Features!

    • 64 different playing levels, which start out easy and get more difficult as the go -- as you beat each level, go on to the next!
    • Sensor chessboard “sees” all your moves automatically -- it’s like magic!
    • Clear display shows all game moves.
    • Elegant design -- game fits in your hand so comfortably, and goes anywhere you go!
    • Handy piece storage area.
    • Check the positions of all pieces -- set your game again if pieces are knocked over!
    • Battery-saving feature -- the computer will turn itself off automatically if no keys are pressed for 20 minutes.
    • If you make a mistake or change your mind about a move, you can take back two half-moves, or a move for each side!
    • Turn the unit off at any time, even in the middle of a game -- TRAVEL COMPANION will remember your game of up to two years!
