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?
– 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.
