  whiteshark: Here is the Sargon I full source-code for Z80 (the book content in fact):

Naturally Sargon is impressive, but having a chess program fully running (even if primitive) on 1KB RAM (code+data) is hot! Itís not a good chess program and will only challenge beginners, true beginners, but still it plays chess!
