Backgammon is believed to have originated at around 3,000 B.C. in Mesopotamia in the Persian Empire which is the present day Iran, Iraq, and Syria. It is the oldest known recorded game in history.
The history of chess goes back almost 1500 years. The classical research about the origin of Chess concentrated on investigating written and archaeological evidence resulting in opinions about Indian/Persian 1 or Chinese origin of the game. The available evidence was, however, not sufficient for a convincing theory. So the question about the origin of Chess still has to be considered open. But it is clear that Iranians are very fond of this game from the past to the present.
