Atari Video Computer System / 2600


· BUG: On game 6 or 7, if the game is left on long enough the computer will start moving pieces around!  {Salim Bhaloo}

· BUG: According to the manual, sometimes the computer will not let you use “en passant” to move out of check.  If this happens, you have to go into the set-up mode to correct it.  Also, if after setting up a chess problem, you initial move is to “castle”, the computer may not accept it as a legal move.

· BUG: If you checkmate the computer, the game doesn’t actually “end”.  Instead, you’ll hear a buzzing sound, and you’ll be able to take the king and keep playing!  {John Soper}   If you manage to promote a pawn afterwards, it may become the computer's (Queen) piece!  {Scott Stilphen}
