The Back Story

Although variations of Chess have been played by many cultures throughout history, the origins of modern Chess are shrouded in mystery.  One widely held belief is that the variation we play today originated in fifth and sixth century India.  From there it traveled by way of Persia and the Arab world along the Silk Road to the East, and along Roman roads to Western Europe.
