Discover the unique ancient Greek chess:


When Chess was spread in Byzantium over 1000 years ago it was named after the ancient Greek word 'Zatrikion' (meaning the ultimate victory) and it

was played on a circular board. Zatrikion circular chess was very popular at that time and for many centuries afterwards including mediaeval times. Zatrikion was historically the first attempt of transforming the square board into a circular one and is known today world wide as "Greek Zatrikion" or "Byzantine Chess". Its historical rules have been preserved but there is also a well known modern version.
