Ancient Games I
Senet will receive the Update 1.5 soon (already available for Game of Ur)
Origin : Ancient Egypt, circa 3100 B.C.
Type of game : Race game. The goal is to bring the pawns from start to finish before the other player can do the same.
History : The game seem to appear during Predynastic Egypt (before the reign of the first pharaoh) even though the first definitive evidence dates from the Old Kingdom. It was very popular and played by rich (on beautiful boards) and poor (with makeshift boards) alike. During the New Kingdom, a spiritual meaning was added to the game. The path followed by the game pieces was compared to the journey of the ka (part of the soul) in the afterlife.
