Dal XVI al XVIII secolo, l. a. sua diffusione e legittimazione in aree periferiche come los angeles Calabria è incoraggiata e gestita dalle grandi dinastie europee, in primo luogo da quella spagnola. Gli scacchi, metafora della società d'ancien regime, affermano le gerarchie esistenti, celebrano il potere assoluto del sovrano e l'arte della guerra, da sempre privilegio dei nobili. Gli scacchisti calabresi sono ritenuti tra i giocatori più temibili e sulle loro straordinarie imprese si raccontano aneddoti che li presentano come cavalieri erranti. Contesi e viziati dagli aristocratici, sono ricoperti di onori e ricchezze, ma l. a. loro vita è difficile e avventurosa, l. a. loro fortuna effimera e altalenante. in line with primeggiare tra centinaia di bravi giocatori bisogna tenersi sempre in allenamento e avere nervi saldi poichè basta una sola sconfitta perchè los angeles gioia tramonti. Alla nice sono uomini sviliti e infelici, degni di compassione poichè vivono una vita raminga, subiscono aggressioni e spesso muoiono soli e in miseria.
