In July 1859, the editors of Scientific American magazine made a cautionary plea to their readers.A game was gaining popularity in America, and it was having a deleterious effect on the youth,“robbing the mind of valuable time that might be devoted to nobler acquirements.” The game was described as“cheerless,” “pernicious,”and “a mere amusement of inferior character.” It was “mental gladiatorship.” The game in question: chess.
