I agree that Chess and a few other games have early progression elements, but nothing really comparable to experience levels. Funnily, I looked this up to argue against someone putting forth the argument I'm putting forth now. I was also planning on referencing Chess/Checkers/etc., but, when I saw experience levels were directly introduced by D&D, I decided not to.
"All these elements were added to a wargame before being part of a RPG. "
That's sort of a questionable example. I mean, it was basically the direct predecessor of D&D during the process in which it became D&D. It's not like these were common elements in wargames.
