Shatranj is an ancient Persian game which is presumed to be the common ancestor of chess, Xiangqi, Shogi, Janggi and Makruk. Each descendant has modified the ancient rules in a different way, but for simplicity only the differences with chess will be listed. Shatranj came to Persia from the Indian game of Chaturanga.
