The exact origins of chess are still unclear though others believe that the game was based on the Indian Chaturanga, which literally means four and arm.

There are other variations of the rules that began to change the shape of the game during the 1300s. The most notable, though originally unpopular, change in the rules was the ability of the pawn to move two squares during the first move instead of one.
