A Brief History of Chess

The history of chess can be traced back to nearly 1,500 years, beginning in India and from there spreading to Persia. From there the game of chess was taken up by the Muslim world and went from there to southern Europe. Once it went to Europe the game pieces’ names and appearances were changed to resemble an English court

Ches (Chess) is an acronym for Chario (rook), Horse (knight), Elephant (bishop) and Soldiers (pawns).

A study involving 4,000 second-grade student showed that after 4 ½ months of studying chess, it significantly increased their IQ score.

According to my research, “The game of chess has been found to be addictive because of increased levels of hormones such as dopamine providing a feeling of euphoria and happiness and, according to my research, thus the brain associates that feeling with playing chess.”

It is believed that playing chess “enhances critical thinking skills” and one of the main reasons chess is difficult is that it requires players to adapt at a moment’s notice. In other games, we do the same thing over and become better at it, but that isn’t the case with chess. “Because you’re playing against someone else, you have to be able to adapt to them to win.”

The Bottom Line
