Thanks to Everyone who responded concerning the names for chess.
Apparently both are acceptable.
For The Royal Game I found a reference in the Britanica, and Sara Friedman
cited another one from Stefan Zweig.
For The Game of Kings there were also literary references, and wide
familiarity, so this usage is correct as well.
