Obviously you don't know how hard it is to MASTER this infernal game so you mindlessly chuckle and smile contentedly like Alfred E. Newman. Now that is really sad.

No, you are,

the most widely accepted scenario is that chess appeared in India around 600 A.D.,

These brief references from India, together with the lack of archaeological evidence, leave a flimsy theoretical foundation for India as the birthplace of chess. It is no wonder that historians have tried to identify other cultures, most notably China, as a more likely birthplace. Here the evidence is even flimsier and the theory fails to reconcile other accepted facts about the relationship between Chinese chess and Western chess. http://www.mark-weeks.com/aboutcom/aa06a14.ht ...
