Vintage JS&A Novag Computer Chess MK-I

  • Includes AC Power Adapter
  • Looks to be in good shape, but I don’t know how it works. It does power on though.
  • Excellent Cosmetic Condition. A couple light scratches can be found upon close inspection. Little to no visible paint wear on the buttons. None of the buttons stick when pressed. No chips, cracks, breaks, or other major damage.
  • Interesting Factoid I found on Wikipedia: The MK I was sold in the USA by Joseph Sugarman’s company as JS&A Chess computer. They challenged World Champion Anatoly Karpov and offered him $50,000 and a percentage of each unit sold. Karpov first rejected, and later accepted to endorse the game, but offered to let JS JS&A spend the money on advertisement to spread the word

This vintage chess computer is in wonderful shape for its age. When introduced to the professional chess world nearly 30 years ago, it was quickly nicknamed “The Monster” for its skill at thumping curious players at chess clubs. I tested it out to the best of my ability. All the buttons running up the right side work; all the board squares respond to the placement of pieces; and all the LED lights across the board are nice and bright. When I challenged it to a game of chess, it obliterated me.

Detail

I would give the board a 8.75 / 10 for cosmetic condition. There are a few faded circles on the squares where pieces presumably sat for years between uses. The board has a fair number of very faint scrapes in the surface of the finish, which are only visible when tilting it into a certain light. Other than that, there are no significant cosmetic flaws.

The “Monster” has tons of features that I don’t claim to understand, but I can appreciate the rich woodgrain board and understated, gorgeous design. It comes with a full set of magnetic pieces which appear to be original.

Detail

The power supply is not original: it’s a Panasonic 9V AC adapter that I found to fit. Although the Constellation Expert is rated for an 8.5V power supply, the adapters from Novag’s factory were notorious for their inexact voltage, sometimes outputting far higher than 8.5 volts. Accordingly I figured 9 volts would be fine as a replacement, particularly for light or occasional use. It’s hard to find an 8.5 volt AC adapter in the thrift shops. I will send the buyer a scanned digital copy of the manual.
