In 1769, the court of Empress Maria Theresia witnessed one of that era's most amazing feats of engineering: The Turk, a machine that could play chess. Clockwork Game retells the story of the automaton's 85-year career, which spanned two continents and included challenges from Napoleon, Charles Babbage, and Benjamin Franklin.
