Hey stop it Ismenio.

I had an Mattel Intellivision console around 1981, I thought it was earlier but that is apparently about right. Anyway your Coleco link made me hark back to those days when video games were fresh and becoming massive in popularity. I had a look for it and this came up :-

Looks to have been released in 1982. If you follow the links you will find that you can get an emulator for Windows and dozens of games including USCF Chess.

Oh the nostalgia !! I was deeply addicted to an Intellivision Pacman clone for a while. 

Help !!!!!

Here's something interesting. That's a Colleco cartridge, a chess game of course! But guess what company developed the game?

Here's one reason some might be interested in getting one of these: looks like they were never released! So I don't know how those folks got their hands on this but I would imagine these would be pretty collectible.
