Tablero con marco en color nogal

El Chaturanga es un antiguo juego de mesa originario de la India y se considera el abuelo de todos los juegos de la familia del ajedrez. En el Libro de los Reyes del poeta indio Firdusi, se dice que el origen del juego se debe a una polémica surgida tras una guerra de sucesión al trono entre dos hermanos. El juego representaría la batalla.

Para jugar al Chaturanga se enfrentan dos jugadores llevando dos juegos de fichas cada uno, o cuatro jugadores en dos equipos enfrentados. El objetivo del juego es destronar ambos reyes del equipo contrario o acabar con sus ejércitos antes de que ellos acaben con el propio. Un entretenido juego de estrategia en el que podemos encontrar ciertas semejanzas con el ajedrez pero que, al mismo tiempo, aporta al juego un toque más original y exótico.

La palabra Chaturanga quiere decir "cuatro fuerzas" en sánscrito, y se cree que hace referencia a los cuatro cuerpos que componían los ejércitos de la India en aquel entonces, que se verían representados por las fichas del juego.

El tablero que puedes comprar aquí está realizado artesanalmente en madera y decoupage, y diseñado para que puedas colgarlo de la pared como si fuese un cuadro. Además, cuenta con un sistema trasero de almacenaje para guardar las fichas y las instrucciones cuando no se está jugando. Las fichas están elaboradas también a mano, hechas en pasta y con originales diseños inspirados en modelos antiguos.

The ad said 'Hurry - Only One in stock', so I purchased this item on November 26th, 2022. It was already made, or so I thought, so all they needed to do was to mail it. I WAS WRONG. I had purchased it as a Christmas gift, so I started getting worried the week before Christmas. I was finally told that it was to ship on 12/18/22. What?!?! Shipping 3 Weeks later?!?! The proprietor told me that she also stated that each item was custom made and that was stated in the ad. But why say 'Hurry - only one in stock'?!? I went back to the post for the item and it still says that. Since the item ships from Europe and I would not arrive for Christmas, I cancelled the order. I advised the proprietor that she was engaging in false advertising. BEWARE.


Article reçu en bonne état. Très jolie, peu autant servir en jeu qu'en décoration.


Aesthetically was a bit uglier than in photo
