Chess: A Journey Through Time Tracing back to the 6th-century Indian game of Chaturanga, which encapsulated the essence of infantry, cavalry, elephants, and chariotry into pawn, knight, bishop, and rook, chess is a game that has transcended geographical and cultural borders. It followed the Silk Road, eventually reaching the far corners of Europe and the Middle East, evolving with each culture it touched, growing into the modern version we know and love today. The term "checkmate" itself, a core essence of the game, has its roots in Persian "shāh māt," translating to "the king is helpless."
