    Egypt is an African culture. Very closely related to her sister the Nubian empire.

    If memory serves, the Nubians ruled Egypt for a time. 🐾

    Yes, the 25th Dynasty. In 1000 B.C.E.,the Nubian Emperor was the most powerful man on Earth.

    It was through Africa that chess spread from the civilised world to Europe. I know this because I introduced chess to Europe.

    [CITATION NEEDED]

    well no...citation isnt needed. this is a forum not a research paper. but if you are a good player you notice how simplified chess becomes after queens and bishops trade...and there were no queens or bishops as we now know them. the queens were rather useless and so were the bishops. so even promoting a pawn to a queen wasnt possible. and there was no castling so developing rooks was sortof a chore. this all comes together to make a pretty simple game. i just honestly think so. maybe not for someone at your level but for a more advanced player absolutely.

    Correct...this is a forum,not a research paper,however, if you wish to be understood as presenting a claim vs a mere opinion,then a reason has to be presented,such as a citation or some sort of evidence, on why your claim should be taken seriously.

    Sure. But if you have no way to give a reason besides "methinks so" when challenged on a claim, I hope no sane mind will trust you.

    Btw, no need for the condescending tone - even if you were crushingly superior to me at chess, which you are not judging by your ratings, I would not take your word for it.
