Burma

Chess arrived in Burman in the 8th century via the kingdoms of Arakan and Mon.  The game was perceived as a quasi-religious game symbolizing the battle between good and evil.  Burmese chess (sittuyin) was played in the royal courts during the Pagan period (1044-1287).   The Myanmar Chess Federation joined FIDE in 1990.
