Ancient Egyptian Senet

 

Ancient Egyptian Senet

Gaming boards of 3 x 10 squares have been found extensively in ancient Egyptian archaeological sites. The game was known to the ancient Egyptians as the Game of Thirty Squares or Senet (sometimes spelt Senat) and seems to have been extremely popular.

The rules of Senet have been deduced over time by games experts to a reasonable degree and the game is enjoyable for children and adults.
