  • Simple version of Hounds and Jackals - wooden board with vinyl playing surface
  • Wooden playing pieces
  • Rustic aesthetic
  • Manufactured in Spain

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.

A version of Hounds and Jackals consisting of a wooden board with a vinyl playing surface.

The vinyl surface is nicely decorated and features a rustic aesthetic. The playing pieces are wooden and painted.

On the underside of the board there is a storage drawer for the pieces. Rules are included.

This game is hand made by a small artisan craftshop in Spain. Each game is very slightly different - the pieces are not always uniform and and the wood has a colour-washed finish that is designed to give it a vintage look. This is not to everyone's taste so please do scrutinise the pictures before ordering.
