There is no definite evidence of when exactly chess first appeared. However, historians tend to agree that chess evolved from earlier Indian board games, likely chaturanga. The ancient Indian game shared two characteristics present in all later variants: a different power for each piece and the fact that the fate of the king determines the outcome of the game. Chaturanga later evolved into shatranj during the seventh century. Shatranj spread to the East, North, and West, gaining different characteristics along the way. After reaching Europe, the game slowly evolved into what we know today as standard chess.
