I've heard something about
Chess being mentioned in the Ramayana,

was invented between four or five thousand years ago, by the wife of
King Ravana of Ceylon, when the capital was besieged by Rama.
this true, do you know anything about this?
We have no information about the topic
you mentioned. We visited the site you sent us and found the
Although our Chesmayne history of Chess is very extensive, we

Thank you very much for your input.
