Congratulations Mike,

In truth this could be just the most expensive set of spare Monarch chess pieces to be sold on Ebay ever. We will have to see whether the board works first.


As Conchess has a special plug format, the chances that this "non tested" item works are really better than with other computers.
I have many adaptors for Fidelity, Novag and Mephisto computers but only one for Conchess : the one which came with my Ambassador.

Best,

Alain

Mike,

Congrats on the Conchess Monarch buy.  It appears as if the balance of trade between you and Ismenio is getting to be like it is between the U.S. and, say, Guam. 


I don't want to "hear" any more talk of *others* acquiring these things at a significant rate of speed.  Every time I look at something I might be interested in, on eBay, these days you turn out to be the top bidder.

How will I ever catch up? 

Enjoy the new board - it sounds like a nice one.

Believe you me Dick that rapid acquisitions comment was meant for both of us. I was surprised and smug when you thought it was just aimed at you.

My cunning plan is to assemble a Monarch package which Ismenio will not be able to resist. A guy has already offered me a manual copy for 10. I have replied that I have one already but if he has a power cord and box we can do business.

In truth this could be just the most expensive set of spare Monarch chess pieces to be sold on Ebay ever. We will have to see whether the board works first.

Live In Hope
