"The Sargon series were the connoisseur's chess games at the time. This edition includes variable move times, ranging from 5 seconds to infinity. Moves can be undone and you can swap sides during the game. The search feature displays its calculations as you play, which can be useful to learn from. Special tactical situations, opening move sequences and checkmate practices can be loaded in for learning purposes."

"According to the program authors, Sargon III was the first 3rd-party executable available for the Apple Macintosh." --Mobygames.com

I've uploaded a new archive with full scans of package and manuals, and a disk image bootable with Mini vMac. It's an MFS image so it will likely not mount on later Mac OSes unless you move the files to another disk.
