History of t he chess game A chess game is a 64-square board on which two players compete by strategically moving each of their 16 pawns and whose goal is to defeat the opponent by "checkmate" - the irrevocable defeat of the king. The game is played and enjoyed by strategists around the world. But who is behind such an invention? Who invented the chess game? Beyond the legends, the date of birth of the game of chess depends on the more or less broad definition given to it. Games consisting of moving pawns on a grid have been discovered since the third millennium. Although chess is now considered to have originated in India around the year 600, different versions contradict each other as to who invented it. The theory that the game originated in China before moving to India has some supporters. According to one of them, a sage named Sissa invented this strategic game and offered it to an Indian prince for his entertainment. At that time, the term chaturanga was used. The game takes the form of a 64-square chessboard and is played by 4 players (2 teams of 2). Each player has a king, a rook, a knight, a bishop and four pawns.

Star Wars Yoda cuddly toy

Master Yoda is one of the most famous fictional characters in Star-Wars for his wisdom, agility, gifts, combat skills, but also and above all for his special way of speaking! His phrasing, i.e. in the use, original placement, word order and the "object, subject, verb" system which is only used in very few spoken languages. For example, Yoda says”:Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.” “Always pass on what you have learned.”, “When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.`` ''Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.” Here are some examples of the famous cult replicas of this character created thirty-seven years ago! According to a study of 402 languages by the linguist Russell Tomlin, listed in his publication "Functional Principles" (1987), this way of speaking is used in only 1% of the languages in our world. Yoda, undoubtedly one of the characters of the science fiction film "Star-Wars" initially "Star Wars" most appreciated and an original gift idea. Created by George Lucas, the Star-Wars saga tells above all the struggle of the forces of good against those of evil. This plush toy can be offered as a birthday present for a man a woman a child, because who doesn't know Yoda!

Chess and draughts board games

The ancestor of chess , chaturanga ("game of four kings"), was played on 8 × 8 = 64 squares, between four opponents who each played for themselves and had a boat, a horse, an elephant, a king and four pawns. Each player took turns to play, with the roll of the dice indicating the piece to be moved and the choice of square left to the player's discretion. A few years later, the dice (and therefore the use of chance) were removed, the players were paired up and placed their pieces side by side, and finally the direction of each game was entrusted to a single player. Thus constituted, the game of chess will spread in three directions: in China, then in Korea and finally in Japan, where it will give birth to slightly different games; much later (13th century? ) to Russia (either through the Mongols or the Tartars, or through the Byzantine Empire), from where it will go back to Scandinavia, Germany and Scotland; and finally to Iran, where it will be brought by merchants and will take the name of shatranj: it will be adopted by the Arabs, who, after having conquered Iran, will spread the game of chess on the north coast of Africa and will introduce it in Spain. The game then spread throughout Christendom, and Arab manuscripts were followed by European ones.

Birthday theme mug to...

A birth day is a very important celebration for all of us. On this day we are the heroes of the day. Originally (and still in some families and peoples), the birthday boy or girl gave presents to his or her parents (especially to the mother) to thank them for giving birth to him or her. Since the Middle Ages, it was the birthday person who organised the festive meal, so each guest brought a share of the meal. Later on, as not everyone worked in the catering industry, everyone brought the birthday boy or girl something from their own production. Today, giving a birthday present has become a custom and an occasion to show affection to a relative, friend or colleague. But what gift should you give to a friend, grandmother or colleague? We suggest a nice little gift: a personalised mug with a personal photo or a message of your own invention. For example: For the best granny in the world. To my lifelong friend. To the funniest colleague, "It's the crisis, everything is increasing, even your age", "50 years old = 30 years + 20 years of experience" or any other message... It's up to you to choose or to find the message that best suits the person concerned. The originality of the mug is its decoration inside, a special colourful and nice birthday decoration. An original birthday gift, a personalised birthday mug proposed by Gifts-custopolis.com

Star Wars Rey cuddly toy

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away Rey, also known as Rey Skywalker in the Star Wars saga, made appearances notably in "Rebel" (2018), in "The Awakening of the Force" (2015) in "The Last Jedi" (2017) and in "Skywalker's Ascent" (2019). Rey is played by British actress Daisy Ridley. Rey is a rather lonely young wreck raider who was abandoned by her parents on the planet Jakku. "Important, the list of planets (in Star Wars) is" as Yoda would say. Rey joins the Resistance fighting the First Order after meeting various characters: Chewbacca, Finn, the fleeing stormtrooper, the droid BB-8 and Han Solo. Rey reunites with Luke Skywalker after fighting and defeating the evil Kylo Ren. Afterwards, Rey practices becoming a Jedi Knight through Luke's instructions and classes. Rey also learns about his family origins; his paternal grandfather is Emperor Sheev Palpatine; Darth Sidious. This cuddly toy Rey is really very sympathetic and represents, in a way, the strength of femininity that fights against the evildoers, who are mostly men and most often evil. The cuddly toy Rey is therefore a beautiful gift for children, girls or boys, for teenagers or enthusiasts of any age. The Rey cuddly toy is the ideal gift for a birthday, an end-of-year party or as a gift for any other festive event.

Star Wars Good and Evil Mug

May 4 seems to many people to be a day that is completely identical to May 3 or 5, with no special features and no known holidays or anniversaries. Nevertheless, May 4th is the day of the Star Wars holiday and is often the occasion for the introduction of new characters that are added and take their place in the Star Wars saga. This holiday is the source of events that are reinforced by festivals and fan-generated concentrations. Some theme parks such as Disney, which bought the Star Wars licence and Lucasfilms in 2013, and other companies, which do not always have direct links with Star Wars, take the opportunity to communicate, celebrate and reinforce May 4th as Star Wars Day. It is an opportunity for Disney to introduce new characters. However, there are many objects that are part of the Star Wars world that do not always receive as much publicity when they are released, such as the Star Wars mug, which nevertheless deserves praise. For it is undoubtedly one of the most used and frequently seen everyday objects that immediately refers to the Star Wars universe. However, you can also keep this mug in your Star Wars collection without ever using it in your daily life. This Star Wars mug is the essential gift for fans (young and old) of the saga that can be offered as a birthday gift or as a cute gift for Mother's Day or as a special gift for Dad.

History of the cup Tea was introduced during the Chinese Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD). The more than four centuries of Han Dynasty rule are widely regarded as one of the "golden ages" of Chinese history. With the beginning of the Han Dynasty, the pottery industry developed and many types of vessels appeared on the market. The need for a container to drink tea led to the development of the cup, especially the handleless cup in China. Europe discovered tea in the 17th century with the development of trade relations between East and West, but Europeans preferred to drink their tea very hot. The handle was therefore invented in Europe by the German Johann Friedrich Bottger in 1707. In France, the ordinances of 1699 and 1709, which restricted the use of precious metals, encouraged the development of ceramics, particularly earthenware and porcelain, which played an increasingly important role in the creation of cabarets (lunch services) for serving exotic drinks. Throughout the 18th century, there were many innovations in decoration, technique and form.
