Mephisto from Saitek Travel Chess Computer



Out of stock

Slim and handy peg-sensory portable electronic chess computer with wide ranging levels and instructive coaching features for social players

The Mephisto Travel Chess is the smallest and lightest portable chess computer with physical pieces and a sensory board. Intended for beginning to intermediate players wanting to learn more about the game and also its time controls systems almost anywhere, it has a rich feature set beyond that usually associated with such a small chess computer.

Regular functionality includes the ability to retract and replay up to 14 moves, change sides, obtain hints, verify positions, interrupt searches and more. Additionally it features a built-in chess clock, an openings coach, 64 levels and 11 extended teach modes giving 768 permutations for experimentation.

An unfinished game can be held in memory for later resumption and an automatic power down feature conserves battery life while retaining the position and other configuration data. Thoughtful ergonomic touches include a storage area for captured pieces and a translucent blue protective cover to positively retain your position when travelling.
