Description Edit | History

Published in GAMES Magazine, January/February 1981 issue, page 22 (with original rules on page 68) as "a gambling game 1,500 years ahead of its time." R. Wayne Schmittberger adapted the rules for streamlined play.

From GAMES Magazine:

"The oldest known form of chess, Chaturanga is a lively game in which moves are determined, as in backgammon, by a combination of dice rolls and player judgment."
