Product Details

Launched in 2022, the Chess Classics Exclusive combines Millennium's modular 16" Exclusive Board and pieces with their best chess computer ever, the Chess Classics Element. 

The MILLENNIUM Exclusive sensor board with automatic piece recognition is matched to the wooden chess Element computer module equipped with two of the most famous chess engines ever: The King and Chess Genius. This combination provides strength, beauty and portability without compromise; a perfect tool for all chess enthusiasts from serious amateurs to dedicated grandmasters.

The Exclusive's smooth, handmade wooden sensor board with full piece recognition makes moves intuitive, natural and a pleasure to use. The 81 LEDs allow full concentration on your physical game, not a screen or chess clock. The exceptional design is capped off with high speed piece scan recognition and reliability.

Play Online with the Optional Add-on ChessLink Module: Add the ChessLink module and pair with free apps to play online on popular chess server platforms like Lichess and For professional tournaments, Chess Link allows Millennium to integrate seamlessly with the platform.  Play directly on the board against millions of people around the world! Your opponent's moves are displayed with the LEDs on the board and Element module screen. 

Premium Computer Features: "The King" includes a Comfort mode with self-adjusting playing strength levels, as well as the Elo levels to help you assess your own playing strength. By switching to the expert mode, you can compete against an "electronic chess grandmaster" with up to 2500 ELO and even personalize the way your opponent plays. 

In the latest version, "ChessGenius" can not only abandon its game in a hopeless situation, but also offer a draw.

The happy chessnut!

When I compare the chess classic exclusive to the king performance it is like night and day ! The chess exclusive is so much nicer to use ! I like just moving the pieces with out pushing down on the board! The unit came packed nicely and delivered sooner than I expected. I love the display and all of the options available with computer programs. I am very pleased doing business with the chess house!

Chess Classics Exclusive

This is my first purchase of a chess computer after having returned to the game so that I could introduce Chess to my grandchildren. After reviewing several options, I chose the Chess Classics Exclusive by Millennium for the features and flexibility that it seems to offer. I wanted a board that didn’t require pressing down on the pieces to initiate or complete a move; I wanted portability and ease to transport; and the flexibility to play without a direct access to an electrical outlet. Thus far it has met my expectations. The only drawback was with the manual included; it seemed to be a condensed edition with very small print. Fortunately, on Millennium’s website I could download a more comprehensive manual and enlarge as I needed to. I chose Chess House to purchase the computer from for a variety of reasons which included price, accessories (they package the Chess Classics Exclusive together with additional options to add either the ChessLink or the ChessVolt at no additional cost), their commitment to stand behind the products that they sell with easy returns and on-going support. The videos that Raphael has posted which explain the features and benefits of the various chess computers that are offered through Chess House helped in my decision also. I was also impressed with the care that was taken in packing the products for shipping.

This an update to my first review (see below)

Again call the rating 4.5 stars. The purpose of this update is to clarify and underscore important information concerning my experience with this computer that I feel would be extremely useful for any person to know who is considering the purchase of one. The first and most important thing to report is that Paul of Chess House was extraordinary in helping me to determine what was causing problems with play with my computer. In my first review mention was made of the computer making illegal moves occasionally and to that other random difficulties occurred. Random, illogical and frustrating sums up the situation. Paul and I corresponded regularly. In the end it was discovered that the root cause was traced to power interruptions at my home. A new CPU solved the problem and a new Millenium battery pack is on order for travel. Paul also took time to provide me with manuals that cover both engines in this product. Way beyond the call of duty. I can't say enough good things about Paul and Chess House. If you are thinking of buying a Millenium, this is the place to do so. Strongest recommendation. This is a very nice computer and now that it is working properly it is fun to play.

Call it 41/2 stars

I am learning about this computer and have no prior experience with chess computers. It is a very nice product that ergonomically feels and plays almost like having a person to play against. I have taken a half a point off perfection for two reasons: First, today it tried to initiate a pawn move from g7 to h6 with no opposing man on h6. An illegal move and there was no way to reconcile the discrepancy except to terminate the game. Frustrating. Second, the manufacturer provides very little in the way of startup documentation and support. This might not be a big deal for someone with a lot of chess computer experience, but that person is not me. Also, I have not been able to find forum support either. Essentially I find myself on my own with it. I am sure with time and experience some of my questions will get answered, but a bit more support at startup would be appropriate for a product of this sophistication.

Millennium exclusive

The packaging and care of this set is very very nice. The care of the boxing, padding and layout are the best of any game I have ever seen. I think this is a credit to the millennium company, but the fact that Chesshouse uses them for their products shows what a class act they are. Packing and presentation aside? The product itself is amazing with the new chess computer and programs. The best I’ve used in programmable options anywhere. A solid product that will serve well into the future. Thank you for an excellent product!!
