I will just step outside the box here.
Chess is a game which is believed to have been invented around 1500 years ago, more than just a game, it is about strategy, a well placed pawn can cause serious danger when you try and understand why it was placed there for no apparent reason.
move and counter move trying to ambush your oponent without them seeing the trap you have been laying.
The US came out with their big guns to try and checkmate the king, in return only a few pawns have been taken.
Moral of the story is, never underestimate any opponent no matter how strange you thing their little moves are.
Modern popular culture constantly show the little guy beating the big guy in an obviously uneven match.
