The Chaturanga is an ancient board game originated in India and is considered the ancestor of all chess family games. In the Book of Kings, the Indian poet Ferdowsi said that the origin of the game is due to a war of succession to the throne between two brothers. The game represents the battle.
To play Chaturanga, four players (or two players carrying two colours each one) has to face each other. The goal in this game is capture the two adversarys' kings before they end up with our own. A fun strategy game similar to chess but it is also a more original and exotic game.
This board game is handmade in wood and decoupage, and it is designed for you to hang it up in the wall as a picture if you want. It has a rear storage to store the pieces when you are not playing.
The pieces are also made by hand in paste and the design is based in ancient models.

Very disappointed that the seller shipped an item with their logo on the chess board. This is not on the board on any of the product photos. This is supposed to be a replica of an ancient set. The seller’s logo on the playing side of the board ruins the appearance. I’ve sent a message to the seller asking to exchange for a board that looks like the one in their posting, also asked if perhaps they can tell me how to remove the offending mark. I have had no response. If you purchase from this seller, be certain to ask before paying. You may not hear from them after they take your payment.

The vendor was friendly and responded quickly to my questions. The chaturanga game is beautiful and arrived in good condition. It took a little while to arrive, but understandable since it was sent from Europe. Shipping cost was very reasonable. I love the game and doing business with the vendor was a pleasure.

This is really a great chaturanga set! The board is beautiful and sturdy with a little drawer below to keep the game pieces secure. The pieces themselves have a nice handcrafted feel. My experience with the return policy was excellent: one piece arrived damaged and a replacement piece was sent to me immediately, the conversation with the seller was very pleasant and prompt.
