Chess: A History

At the Kaoori Chess Company, we believe that knowing the history of chess is just as important as knowing which fine chess products to buy. Chess is one of the most ancient games in the entire world, with some variations on chess games going all the way back to the 6th century.  It wasn’t until much later that the game as we know it today really took off in any significant way. During the 15th century, the game took hold in Europe, where it grew into a popular game both for leisure and play across Europe as well as eventually in the European colonies in North America. In the 19th century, changing industrialization and an increase in mass made materials led to the creation of standardized chess sets, which led to an increase in tournament play; it was during this century that the first ever international chess tournament was held, sparking a new era of competitive chess that has remained ingrained into society ever since.

Chess has remained a popular pastime for people around the world for more than millennia, and the popularity of chess certainly shows no signs of abating.
