With graphics and fun sound effects this reconstructed version of Senet is not only a game of chance, a bit of skill and strategy is also required. Board games were a favorite pastime in Egypt, and Senet was the most popular of these.
It was played by two people, either on elaborate carved and inlayed boards like the one found in Tutankhamen’s tomb, or simply scratched into the earth. The oldest known representation of Senet is in a painting from the tomb of Hesy, from 2686 BC.
