Intellectual Games


About 2500 BC, settlers of south east Iran (Kerman & Sistan and Baloochestan) used to make various intellectual games and tens of stone and wooden plates for intellectual games were excavated from Jiroft in Kerman.

These games gradually turned into a variety of entertaining and intellectual games such as chess and backgammon.
