From the Melanated Man:
Excerpt taken from African Holistic Health by Dr. Llaila Afrika
The games of “chess” and “checkers” are extracted from an African divination and healing device call Draughts. This device looks exactly like chess except the so-called board has 27 squares, which are laid out in 3 rows of squares with 9 columns. Each column of nine squares represents the nine energy forces (Chakras) of the individual respectively; nine columns for the body, nine for the mind, and nine for the spirit. The so-called playing pieces were placed in a Terra Cotta Bowl or cloth bag and mixed by shaking. Next, the pieces were removed (without looking) and placed on the board from right to left. The pieces have meanings similarly to “tarot cards.” These diving statues (pieces) once placed on the board were read to diagnose the illness, social problem, emotional issues and prescribe treatment.
