King's Check by rubys polaroid

The Art of Chess Warfare

Chess, a most illustrious game handed down from centuries past. I was an observer to this mind battle on the board, a worthy fight but there had to be a victor. Can you guess who won?

Fact Bits

– Chess began in India during the Gupta Empire, spreading to the Persian Sassanid Empire, and then to the Middle East after Muslims conquered Persia.  From there, it spread to Europe and Russia.
– The word “Checkmate” in Chess comes from the Persian phrase “Shah Mat,” which means “the King is dead.”
