The Pharaoh's SENET Game. The finest Ancient Egyptian SENET Board in the World! Museum Quality, Hand Made, a finely made Heirloom.
This beautiful Senet Board is the very finest I produce. I refer to it as the Pharaoh's Senet, as it was designed to be of the quality and beauty suitable to be placed in a tomb and taken with you to the afterlife. The body of the board is made of fine African Padauk, a beautiful exotic wood with rich, deep red tones. The pawn squares on the playing surface are made of solid Cherry Wood and the black lacquered board carriage is made of Birch. The pawns are entirely hand finished and painted, taking inspiration from the first hand notes of Howard Carter who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1923. He described the pawns colors and shapes of the largest of the four Senet boards found in the tomb.
This is considered by many to likely be the first board game, dating back to as far as 3100 BC.
This amazing recreation of that historic game carries all of the aesthetics of the original boards from thousands of years ago. The board measures 16" inches long, 6" inches tall on it's carriage and 5.5" wide. It comes as shown, with game board, carriage (which includes the game rules engraved in the carriage surface), four Egyptian Dice, also known as throwing sticks and 10 pawns.
Each one of these is hand assembled and carefully finished to ensure quality.
This is the centerpiece you have been waiting for, giving you the incredible Egyptian aesthetic as well as historic and strategic game play.
Play the game that was all the rage in the Age of the Pharaohs!
