    I'm looking to purchase a handheld chess game but it seems no one makes them any more and I haven't a phone that can use apps (still old tech). Does anyone have any links where I can get a good challenging chess computer?

    Try google. I just did and got several hits. "electronic handheld chess game" is all you have to type in. Use the same search string on ebay and see what comes up.

    I went through this hankering a while back for old board games I used to play as a child and I went to ebay and found several for sale there. I'm sure with a little patience, you could probably uncover a few sales of handheld chess games.

    thank you to you for your assistance..... I see that most are second hand and over $300 is price .... others are unavailable. Looks like I need to save some of my pension and buy an apple ipod and try their apps.

    I used to to have 'Pocket Chess' on a palm. Absolutely ideal if you can get a used one that still works.

    I bought my kid an acer tablet for under a hundred bucks (Android operating system). Chess apps run on it but must be manually installed.
