Chess is one of the oldest board games in the world, the origin of chess can be traced back to 1500 years ago. Despite being one of the oldest games in the world, it is still widely played among people of all ages, from young to old. Chess is also known as the “game of kings” and there is some truth in that because back in the day, kings used to play this game to practice strategies to face any challenges that may come their way. To this very day, chess is still enjoyed by people, as it helps people bring together through passion. Some people have the hobby of collecting expensive Chess Sets and others want to learn the game so they could get better.
There is no doubt that it requires patience and a lot of thought process to play the game, that is why chess is often associated with the ‘smart’ people. However, you do not necessarily need to be a Brainiac to play the game, you can just play with your friends, and come up with your own strategies to beat them. Another good thing about playing chess is that is a really good mental practice, it allows you to think critically, both inside and outside of the game.
