New: The King Element with Chess960

The top module The King Element by the well-known Dutch programmer Johan de Koning is an extension for the ChessGenius Exclusive. At the request of numerous chess friends and in reminiscence of the legendary TASC chess computers, this module was designed in an elegant wooden case in “retro design”. The new King Element module is now available with an extended software scope. Beside the popular game variant Chess960 (and/or Fischer Random Chess) the program offers 7 additional opening books. It also displays the opening names and ECO codes and suggests the most common moves so that you can train specific openings.

The King Chess960 Edition

The King Element offers completely new and interesting challenges as a chess opponent with its outstanding playing strength and the computer-untypical playing style. More human and emotional you will not play against any chess computer!

The King reminds of the legendary TASC R40, the hithero strongest board computer. With its unique, harmonious design it fits perfectly to your Exclusive Sensorboard.

With The King Element an almost unlimited number of difficulty levels is adjustable and for especially strong players tournament levels are available. A highlight is the adjustable processor throttle: This allows you to reduce the performance of the computer without interfering with playing style and chess knowledge.

Many levels can be selected especially for beginners. Especially the Easy-Levels are rated as especially harmonious, because a special system allows a reduction of the playing strength up to the beginner level without the game looking unnatural.

With the opening libraries more highlights are waiting for you; The “Aegon Book” is the classic for Johan de Koning’s program.
The “Master Book” (>300,000 positions) by Mark Uniacke from HIARCS is an extremely broad and modern variant that guarantees a varied game.

An absolute highlight is the function for saving various “player personalities”. Step by step you create your “King” – your personal chess opponent, designed according to your preferences and strengths! For this you can adapt innumerable parameters of the software, and store in 3 profiles.

The device is extremely information-joyful: Example for this are the announcement of movement suggestions, the announcement of the position evaluation and main variant, the announcement of the permanent Brain calculations as well as the announcement of the number of the calculated movement possibilities.

Saving and loading games in PGN format with subsequent export via the USB interface is also possible.

Chess960 is also known as Fischer-Random-Chess or Fischerchess. World champion (1972-75) Bobby Fischer developed this creative variant with 960 different starting positions. In 2009 the rules of Chess960 were adopted by the World Chess Federation FIDE.

The King differs substantially from ChessGenius in the type of chess game. Playing chess gets aggressive and emotional! With The King Element you bring a second opponent into your house, who will give you a lot of joy.
