Did you Know? Chess is one of the oldest games of history!
Most people are aware that chess is an ancient game, but many are unaware that it dates back at least 1500 years! The game is thought to have started around 600 AD, long before the Middle Ages. The game was called Chaturanga back then, and it was nothing like the game we play now. In fact, the game represented a synthesis of games and rules, and it evolved over time, as everything does. When the game of chess spread throughout Europe, it roughly evolved into what we know today as chess.
