--*--

I am interested in the history of chess. The title of this collection has evolved. I added odd games and later other games, because I am not allowed to create any more collections.


Polerio vs Domenico, 1610 
(C57) Two Knights, 21 moves, 1-0

Ruy Lopez vs G da Cutri, 1560 
(C20) King's Pawn Game, 9 moves, 1-0

Greco vs NN, 1619

I am including this because the first move is uncommon
