  1. 7 out of 10 correct; I haven’t played a game of chess in while but this quiz reminded me of what a fascinating game it is, so I think I’ll ask some friends to play against me one of these days. I hope at least one of them will accept my challenge.

    • It’s not a bad score. You did well considering its history is unknown to many people. Yes, the game originated in India. It went through various phases (changes). It had an emperor and a queen could move one step at a time diagonal. Now, the queen is powerful.
