The pack contains three board games handmade in wood that are inspired by real games found in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.
The Senet, invented in ancient Egypt, is one of the oldest games known. This board game made of wood by hand is inspired by the Senet of Amenhotep III (fourteenth century BC) which is now on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. A more modern reference to the game Senet is in the American show Lost where, in the sixth season, Jacob character plays a game with a Senet board located on the beach. SIZE: 30 x 11 x 6 cm
ROYAL GAME OF UR
The Royal Game of Ur was played with two sets, one black and one white, of seven markers and three tetrahedral dice. The rules of the game as it was played in Mesopotamia are not known but there is a reliable reconstruction of gameplay based on a cuneiform tablet of Babylonian origin dating from 177–176 BC by the scribe Itti-Marduk-Balāṭu. It is universally agreed that the Royal Game of Ur, like Senet, is a race game. SIZE: 25,5 x 11,5 x 6 cm.
HOUNDS AND JACKALS
Board game from the Ancient Egypt made in wood. Ten carved ivory pegs, with heads resembling five hounds and five jackals, were excavated from a tomb at Thebes by Howard Carter in the 1900’s. The original ivory board with its game pieces was discovered as a complete set. The rectangular playing surface, with rounded top, measured six inches long and three inches wide. The animal headed pegs were contained in a drawer underneath; locked by an ivory bolt. Dating back to around 2000BC, the game was a splendid find, and now rests in the Metropolitan Museum of New York. SIZE: 30x13x7 cm

Looks authentically hand made and from a long time ago which makes these boards awesome! They took awhile (Im in the states) but arrived safe and unharmed. They had how to play instructions in English-except one was accidentally in Spanish-but the seller remedied that quickly by messaging me the correct one. Great job! Do not hesitate to buy from this shop :)

I was very pleased when I received these games. They are a present for my Dad and we will have fun playing them together. The games are nicely made and were packed well. The individual game pieces look like they will stand up to many games. The boards also shipped on time and they were exactly what I was searching for.
