All-in-one package containing Chess, Checkers, and Backgammon. Wonder why Reversi didn't make the cut?

Screen Shots

Triple Challenge is an "album cartridge" collecting three of the original Strategy Network games into one package: Backgammon, Checkers and Chess. Some kind of modification or version differences exist, as the buzz sound effect is different in these games than the typical original Mattel versions. Other than that, it's just three classic board games on one cartridge.
