Chess is a game that has been played in many forms and avatars for nearly 1500 years. Historians trace its history back to a game played in India called Chaturanga. From India it spread to Persia and subsequently to southern Europe.

Today, chess is a popular game played across the world. Kids can especially benefit from learning chess or honing their skills as it encourages patience, memory, concentration, problem solving, and an understanding of consequences. Kids will use inductive and deductive reasoning to break down problems using recall, analysis, judgment, and abstract reasoning. Needless to say kids will improve their confidence and decision making.
