A noventrigintillion or novemtrigintillion is equal to $$10^{120}$$ in the short scale, or $$10^{234}$$ in the long scale by Conway and Guy's naming system.by Conway-Wechsler system.[1][2][3][4][5] Noventrigintallion is an original name by Conway and novemtrigintallion is a modified name.

In the long scale which is commonly used in France and Germany, $$10^{120}$$ is called vigintillion.

Aarex Tiaokhiao gave the name tetrigintillion, referring to the value of this number.[6]

Wikia user NumLynx gave the name quadragintisand for this number's short scale value.[7]

The prefix quadtena- has a meaning of one novemtrigintillion[8].

Shannon number

The Shannon number, named after Claude Elwood Shannon, is also equal to $$10^{120}$$, and is an estimate of the game complexity of chess. It is approximately equal to the number of possible 40 move (80 ply) games, 40 moves being an estimate of the average length of of a chess game. It is neither the number of possible positions (estimated to be between $$10^{43}$$ and $$10^{45}$$) nor the number of possible games.
