How humans made Chess

Chess is a game I have never been very good at, but it is fused with the story of humanity. I am a sucker for a beautiful chess set, so when designing the EisenCo Chessmen (featured all over the video) I did what I do best, steal from history. This video details all of that, and includes some great anecdotes from all over the world!
