COLLECTING INFO
Well you wont come across this to often in the UK, in Europe
maybe ten times a year, no other areas have a known release
of the Chess Module. I cannot even confirm that this was
available in the shops in the UK originally.

I know of no significant variants of the chess module other
than the PHILIPS long box release, which comes as a cart,
attached to a module which in turn attaches to the back of the
G7000, The module will work in other machines such as the
7200/7400 types but awkwardly hangs off since there is
nowhere to attach the module to. other things to bear in mind
for the collector is this is not compatible with O2em, so to play
videopac chess ideally you need a G7000 and a actual Chess
Module, I'm not sure if this works on the Odyssey2, if you
know please mail me to confirm.

Although not ranked as super rare, it is hard to find and you
will pay a premium for one in a decent box, as there was a
insert cut in the lid for display purposes, also you had to take
a polystyrene inner out which damaged the thin card outer.
much like the Basic module
PLAYING INFO
Its Chess !!!, interestingly though, the poor old processor in the
G7000 wasn't powerful enough to handle the complex
calculations that chess strategy requires, so additional resources
were added to the module including a z80 processor.
