Senet The Game of The Pharaohs

Senet is one of the oldest known board games. Fragmentary boards that could be senet have been found in First Dynasty burials in Egypt, 3100 BC. A hieroglyph resembling a senet board appears in the tomb of Merknera (33002700 BC). The first unequivocal painting of this ancient game is from the Third Dynasty tomb of Hesy (c. 26862613 BC). People are depicted playing senet in a painting in the tomb of Rashepes, as well as from other tombs of the Fifth and Sixth Dynasties (c. 2500 BC). The oldest intact senet boards date to the Middle Kingdom, but graffiti on Fifth and Sixth Dynasty monuments could date as early as the Old Kingdom
