Microchess 6502 source code

Microchess is the first game ever published for a home computer back in the 1970s.  It was written for the Commodore MOS KIM-1 single board computer by Peter Jennings (no, not that Peter Jennings!) and when you bought a copy all you got was a manual with the machine code listing in hexadecimal.  To play you needed to punch those numbers in by hand.  Yes, really!  The good news was that the KIM-1 had a cassette interface.  ;-)

I found the assembly language source code online!  Yay!
