Chess was devised in India, and was known as Ashtapada which means 64 squares. Unlike how the game is played today, it used to be played with a dice on a checkered board, but without black and white squares. A few years later, the game was called Chaturanga quadripartite. It was divided into four parts called angas , which were symbolic of the four branches of an army. Just like the real ancient Indian army, it had pieces called elephants, chariots, horses and soldiers, and was played to devise war strategies. In CE, Persians learned this game and named it Shatranj.
