Ancient Egyptian Hounds and Jackals

Ancient Egyptian Hounds and Jackals

Hounds and Jackals is an ancient Egyptian board game of the Pharaohs. It is one of the oldest board games in the world having been found in tombs dated at 3000 and 4000 years old. Only a few examples of the game have ever been found but historians have been able to determine the rules to a good extent.

The game is a simple race game - controlled by the roll of the dice, you must move to the top of the board to the cobra's eye. Learn to avoid penalties and seek rewards. The idea is to win a race to capture one of your opponent's pieces, capture them all and win the game.
