Senet was arguably the world's first board game, created in ancient Egypt in roughly 3,500 BC.
In its time, Senet was exceptionally popular with everyone from commoners to pharaohs.
Later in its reign of popularity, the Egyptians believed that people who were good at it were protected by the gods.
Unfortunately, since it was so popular, nobody bothered to write down the rules.
Why bother when everyone knows how to play?
In recent years, scholars made educated guesses and came up with a few different rule sets - we picked the best ideas from each, and made our own variation.
