Chess is one of the oldest games known to humanity. Its origins go back to the ancient civilizations of India and China and the basics are so simple they can be taught to children, yet it remains a formidable intellectual challenge for even the most skilled players. Checkers - though by no means the conceptual equivalent of chess - also has a long and distinguished history and can provide hours of strategic fun. Includes an easily portable playing board and complete set of pieces.
