Byzantine Chess

Byzantine chess, also called round chess, is a 1000 year old variant of the game of Shatranj. It was developed from the Persian version of the original Indian game. It was popular in the 10th century after Christ in Byzantium (the city now called Istanbul), and hence is called Byzantine chess. In this period, chess was a game played almost exclusively by the nobility as generally they were the only ones with the level of education required to handle this game's relative complexity. Available in red, light blue, golden brown
