    Ha, it's interesting to compare how the old Intellivision game USCF Chess handled this. From the manual, page 4:

    The Chessmaster GG opening book appears to be broken, sadly. Or, more correctly, it seems to be only one move deep.

    On NES Chessmaster, I can get as much as 10-11 moves deep in certain openings...

    Nice one! :) That just leaves Super Monaco GP on the 5-in-1, and that's a game that totally eludes my skills.
