Chess Computers - The End of an Era

For nearly 40 years, chess players have enjoyed electronic chess computers. Long before the Internet existed, electronic chess computers allowed chess players to play a game of chess whenever or wherever they wanted. All they had to do was insert the batteries, or plug into the wall outlet, and it was time to play computer chess! Chess computers introduced many of the concepts that have become common place today, from adjustable difficulty level, the ability to take back moves, get hints and even the ability to verify that only legitimate moves were being made. You could even use the chess computer when playing with a friend, allowing the computer to referee the game and monitor time usage. Even in this technological age, these now old-school electronic chess game offer the sensory experience in moving real chess pieces, closest to the real thing. Thats just one reason the electronic chess system remains strong to this day.

But the time of the chess computer has ended. In April 2014, Novag Electronics closed it's doors forever. Novag was the last of the big three brands to go obsolete, leaving a gaping void in the chess computers market.
