    Chess Genius PRO

    When I received my shipment it was perfectly packaged and when delivered there was not even a dent in the shipment box. The Genius Pro special edition was factory wrapped. When I attempted to install the batteries I had a huge disappointment, one of the battery contact springs was not attached. I saw that it was an easy fix and reattached it rather then sending it back. This, in no way was the fault of Chesshouse, just a quality control issue with Millennium. Other then that the board worked perfectly. Considering how long the Genius Pro has been around tech wise in its operations I would never would have guessed its age. The purchase and communicatiion with Chesshouse was great. I will certainly order from them again!


    I like this overall. The engine is very strong and challenging to play. I don’t like the chrome pieces. Just a personal choice but a standard color for white might be better. The case with this is nice and maybe it should come standard rather than special edition? But in this price range I’m more than satisfied

    Suberbly crafted digitalized chess set

    Sasy to use with favorite functions for single player against computer. and setup chess puzzle's to solve.

    Excellent Chess Set

    I purchased the Millennium Chess Genius Pro about three weeks ago, but my wife wanted to give it to me for Christmas. I opened it and was very impresses with it. Having a case to store it in was a plus. I am a beginner chess player so I haven't had a lot of time to really use it. I am really looking forward to learn to play chess and I truly believe I have the right chess set to help me. I also am very impressed with the packaging of the chess set and more importantly, the customer support. I know if I have a problem or concern, Chesshouse will be there to help me. Thank you Chesshouse.

    Small Display - I made it work!

    I knew the display was going to be small when I bought this. I figured I would have to use my bifocals, which I hate to wear. I solved this issue quite easily. I purchased the perfect, inexpensive magnifying glass. I don't need my bifocals! Check it out here:

    As to the control panel, once you read the manual, the buttons are easy to work with. They make sense. I didn't have to refer to the manual again. I've only had time to play a couple of games (which I lost) to familiarize myself with navigation and play. I definitely prefer this tactile approach to a monitor. This set is beautiful and I appreciate the challenge. I hope to spend a lot more time playing once the holidays are behind us and everyone goes away.
