Chess Up 2 board I coming out!

I suspect that the appeal of electronic boards is greater for players rated 1000 and below. I do not know if players significantly higher rated are as interested in owning one.

I look at the situation from the prospective of the purchaser of an electronic board. If I cannot rely upon a 100% stable direct link between a site and the board, it does not emotionally satisfy me that manufactures tried in good faith to offer one but were not able to.

"Does not emotionally satisfy"

That explains so much about your posts.

Facts do not care about your emotions.

Good-bye.

It seems Rsava my posts have emotionally upset you. That was not my intent when discussing the history of electronic chess boards.

While I appreciate the functionality, I do not like the $15 Temu-style appearance:

Why does it have to look like a cheap toy?

I think it is like that due to the audience it is aimed at.

And WOW! That is incredibly expensive for the Chessup 1 (which is that link).

Rsava I see in your notes that you intend to leave chess.com. Is it because you have experienced difficulty playing with your various electronic boards on this site?!

Thanks @chessroboto. I had seen the N & B Mate video, had not seen the other.

This board looks very promising. Glad I got in with the Kickstarter.

Certainly looks better than the first generation. More appealing to adults.
