Hello James,

very interesting that your Uncle and you worked there.
What would be of my big interest is the question in which way AVE was connected to Sargon/Applied Concepts.
Who did use whose knowledge to build the identic chess computers? IĀ“ve never learned that...

Best

Back in the 80's when I immigrated from Ireland, I worked for my Uncle who ran AVE Micro Systems in El Centro, CA.
...
I actually built the Sargon Chess games. It was a brilliant piece.

Very interesting ! if you have memories to share, we will be very happy to read them.

If anyone knows where I can purchase a Sargon, please let me know.

They appear regularly on ebay.
There is also the Suche und Biete forum where you can post in English.

Best regards,
Alain

AVE Sargon Chess Board Game

Hi All,

My 9 year old just took up chess at school and it prompted
me to sign up.
He has been asking me to buy him a chess board, and it got me thinking about the Old AVE Sargon Chess Game.

Back in the 80's when I immigrated from Ireland, I worked for my Uncle who ran AVE Micro Systems in El Centro, CA.
Their main office was in Orange County.

I actually built the Sargon Chess games. It was a brilliant piece.
I am very proud to see all of you out there who still owns one.

If anyone knows where I can purchase a Sargon, please let me know.

Regards,

James
San Diego
