SENET is considered by many to likely be one of the very first board games in human history, dating back to as far as 3100 BC. There were four Senet boards of various sizes and materials found in the tomb of King Tutankhamen by Howard Carter in 1922, so it was clearly a favorite pastime for the young King. One of the Senet boards found in the tomb had a wonderful secret. Turning the game board over revealed the game of Aseb, also known as 20 Squares. This game, similar in play to the Sumerian game of UR, is a race to the afterlife!

This amazing reimagining of that historic game carries all of the aesthetics of the original boards from thousands of years ago. The board measures 8" inches long and comes as shown, with game board, carriage, four Egyptian Dice, also known as casting sticks, 10 pawns and instructions for play. This version is smaller than the others I offer, which makes it perfect for those who lack a lot of space in their apartment/house or who are on a budget but don't want to miss out on a wonderful treasure, fit for a King!

Each one of these is hand assembled to ensure quality.

This is the game you have been waiting for, giving you the incredible Egyptian aesthetic as well as historic and strategic game play.
