I have read many chess books. My problem is I remember very little of any of them. 

With the earliest machines you soon realise that they accept odd moves. I gave my Compuchess an airing the other day in connection with my bungled attempt to get Compuchess II. As black it accepted white castling kingside followed by Kg1 - f1. To make sense of this Compuchess simultaneously uncastled the rook back to h1. It is only then a small step to Qf7 mate.

No wonder the early chess computer buyers were not that happy with the machines we treasure today.

All the best
Mike

The Chess Challenger 1 invented easy mode. As it accepts illegal moves you can teleport pieces across the board for instant checkmates.

e.g. M.Watters v CC1 (Milton Keynes 24/2/05 - non arcade conditions)

1. Nf3  d5
2. Ng5  e5
3. Qf7 mate

That certainly takes "fool's mate" to an entirely new level!

How did you ever come up with that Qf7 move - you must read a lot of chess books.  :-)

my Elo rating would sink to well below that of your good old CC1.



Wow, Mike, your Elo is that high?  Now I know I need to hit the books, or something, as I doubt I could even beat the CC1.  :-)

Well the chance of them playing chess rather than pool, shanghai or whatever cannot be that high. In an amusement arcade with all the clangs, dongs, disco music and JACKPOTs my Elo rating would sink to well below that of your good old CC1.

Anyway I shall put arcade machines on my Ebay search list, just in case

You're teasing me Mike!

I'll try to find more about that. For some reason it amuses me to see a machine like this on an arcade shop with people inserting coins to play a game of chess rather than space invaders!

Best,

Ismenio is it not a motherboard for an Arcade Games Machine which has a collection of mini games including chess?

Now an Arcade machine playing chess would look handsome on this website, and there can't be many collectors that have one.

Interesting finding I'd like to share. In one of the branches of my research I found out that, at one point, Taito, the company that produced many of those arcades, was working on a prototype for an electronic chess game! I had never heard of that before and cannot locate any more info about it.

However, I came across this product which I'm still trying to figure out exactly what it is:
