Chess Genius Exclusive is currently the most luxurious and affordable hands-on electronic board game - perfect for solo chess play.
Exclusive is engineered in Germany following many years of careful listening and discussion with avid players and computer enthusiasts. These people helped architect the ultimate hands-on chess game for the home.
For example, it was found that the most comfortable size chessboard (smaller than tournament and larger than portable sizes) would measure just under 16" (40cm) square. And it would be beautiful. The handmade, elegant wooden sensor-board is exactly that - attractive to display.
During game play, the eye must be able to stay on the board and not depend on glancing to the side. For this reasons, 81 LEDs clearly illuminate moves as you play them and as the computer beckons you to respond with its move.
The ideal chess computer doesn't require you to press down on the squares. That's why built-in, fully-automatic piece detection is achieved with new rapid-sensing technology.
The computer unit is located in a separate cabinet with a generously sized display. It offers numerous display options similar to the earlier world-class computers from Mephisto, and of course chess timing during a match.
The cable connection between the clock and board makes it possible to exchange the hardware module and make future software updates via USB.
It's powered by an ARM Cortex M7 processor with 300 MHz and a significantly increased Flash and RAM-memory serves as motor for the hardware.
Estimated tournament strength of the ChessGenius Exclusive range between 2350 and 2400 ELO which even surpasses the performance level of the legendary Mephisto world champion computers
Thanks to this a new era of development in Munich, Germany, the Exclusive is being enjoyed by chess computer enthusiasts all over the world.

In terms of functionality this board is the best. Superior to DGT in terms of game play as the LED lights means you don't have to look off the board. Features are great. Glad I purchased it. The board is just the right size, not too big and not too small. The pieces are not weighted and could be nicer, this is the only are for improvement.
I guess I may never beat this computer, but the the beauty of the board and the pieces, combined with the ease of use and the quality of play, make this a wonderful chess experience - every time! I am so glad I’ve treated myself to a lifelong chess sanctuary like this!
My wife recently passed away.. Every night during dinner we would play chess. In some small little way, when I use this chess set, it is like she is there.. the menu items take a little getting used to but it is great
