I have heard the same but up till now in my research have not found anything to indicate that it is Haram

However pleae do note that in olden days people used to play chess to gamble...gambling is haram, thus playing chess to gamble would obiviously be as well.

Also another aspect in which it becomes haram is when people get obsessed with it, spending hours upon hours playing it and wasting their time.

An innocent game of chess is ok, but for people who make it a habit and sit all day long playing chess with complete disregard of time or anything else - it becomes haram for them - as is in the case of most things when done in an obsessive access.

:sl:

all i know is that there is a hadith that says that playing chess is like putting your hand in pigs blood..

im pretty sure thats right but i could be wrong..

edit, it was actually about backgammon:

Muslim (2260) narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever plays dice (backgammon) is like one who has dipped his hand in the flesh and blood of a pig.”
