Do you have any idea how long the game of Chess has been around for? I think it is safe to say that every body has some idea that Chess has been played for many, many years but we here at Active Toys were surprised to find out just how long it has been around and we thought that we would share it with you.
The early form of Chess is believed to have originated in North-West India in the 6th Century. The pieces included the infantry, cavalry, elephants and chariots, which later became the modern day pawn, knight and bishop etc.
In 600 the game of chess was found in Persia and then spread to the Muslim world between 633-644. It wasn’t until the 9th century that the game of Chess reached Western Europe and Russia and by the year 1000 the game of Chess has spread throughout the whole of Europe.
