Product Details

Senet may be the oldest board game in the world. It has been found in Predynastic and First Dynasty burials of Egypt, [2] circa 3500 BC and 3100 BC respectively. It was one of the most popular games of Egypt. It is a two-player strategy game.The set is made of wood, as are all the playing pieces. One die, and instructions included.Senet is an ancient Egyptian board game similar to backgammon. Each player has 5 pawns which travel around a 3 by 10 board in an S shaped path. Movement is dictated by the throw of 4 sticks (black on one side and white on the other) which can produce a 1,2,3,4, or 6, (5 is not possible) depending on how they land.. As in backgammon, the objective is to bear all of one's pawns off first.

  • Possibly the oldest board game in the world.
  • The set is made entirely of wood including all the playing pieces.
  • One die, and instructions included.
