VIDEO CHESS / Atari / 2600

Was this the first chess video game? ... Most likely. The computer isn't all that sharp, but major points for making it all work properly and having a decent interface with tolerable speed as the computer ponders its moves (while still not playing like a total dunce.) I also like the random flashing colors in between turns, is the computer trying to cheat by inducing epileptic seizures?
