    Hey everybody! CS here, its been a while since I've logged on. I posted a while ago that I was leaving chess.com, but I decided to leave my account up. 

    I have a chessboard computer that I have barely used, as I had a better Fritz 13 software. It's in good condition, with no pieces missing. I don't have the charger right now, I might be able to find it I just haven't had the time.

    The computer is going on craigslist or ebay soon, and I will post the link when it does. Here is the site with all the details:http://www.mephisto.net/explorer.html

    I'll be selling it for $70, $30 below the sell price. If you are interested email me at christiansoldier007@gmail.com. I'll send pics if you're interested

    Also, I want to sell my copy of Fritz 13. I haven't seen any used copies on ebay, so I'm not quite sure what to do there.

    Thanks for reading, God bless you all!

    So why are you selling Fritz 13?  I doubt if you will get much for it, but I'd suggest listing it at $25 and see what happens.

    Don't give up completely on chess.  It's a good hobby that keeps the mind sharp.  Especially as you age, I know, it helps keep the mind sharper and deter dementia, senility, and alzheimers.

    Amazon reviews say it sucks.

    Two reviews, one of them that uses the term "move my man" and the other that says the computer cheats does not really indicate the product "sucks".

    It indicates to me that the people leaving the reviews aren't very good at chess.

    Wow I couldn't find it on amazon when I searched lol

    When I played it, I had a really good experience, I'm just not the personality that can play against a computer for an extended time. I didn't experience any of those problems, if it does happen I'll let whoever purchases it return it

    Maybe the first review, but the second sounds like he has a legitimate gripe.  I mean, it's not like the computer captured en passent and he claimed it was cheating, he said that a rook tried to move through a pawn.  Unless, perhaps, the pawn was moved to the wrong square at some point or something and the computer didn't register it.  But the other thing he mentioned was a knight only moving 2 squares and not completing the L-shaped move.

    So throw out the first one and you still only have one review. One review does not a good sampling make.

    And as you point out, if the pawn was moved to the wrong square. If the Knight was moved to the wrong square, same issue.

    It looks like it's been taken off the shelves. I won't buy something that's no longer supported, and with the bad reviews it's just too suspicious.

    Hm thats odd I've had no problems with it... honestly its been a good board and I'd let someone return it if it didn't work out for them. I wonder why its off the listings

    What level did you reach, and how can you sell it without the power-plug, when it's no longer available?

    The last one to sell on Ebay was brand new and went for $49.95 in the original packaging.  You might want to rethink your pricing.

    @zBorris the plug is a basic one and I think I know where it is. You can adjust it to whatever level you want, I don't remember what I put it

     

    @baddogno really? The only listings I've seen are higher than that - maybe I'll lower ts to around $50

    You have to do an "advanced" search which includes noncurrent listings, but yeah, $50 new in the box.  Also about your Fritz 13, if it's used and has already been installed once, can it be installed again on a different computer?  No expert here, but I think the license is only good for the original machine.  I've been wrong before Embarassed, but it might be why you don't see "used" copies for sale.  Sorry chess didn't work out for you, but best of luck in whatever you're currently pursuing.

    Thanks for the info, I'll lower the price then :)

    And thats why I haven't been trying to sell fritz, I'm not sure if you can reinstall on another computer. I did it with an older program but not sure
