Senet – The ancient Egyptian board game

  • Excellent standard of finish
  • Made in Spain
  • Superb quality
  • Supplied in lovely gift box

Senet is one of the oldest games available on the Regency Chess website. This version has been sourced from an artisan in Spain who makes extremely high quality traditional games. The set comes nicely presented in a quality box that will last as a permanent storage solution. The set makes an ideal gift and is certain to spark plenty of interest.

The game of Senet was discovered on Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs and it’s thought that broken up Senet boards were found in the tombs of Ancient Egyptians. These date back as far as 3000 BC. The Egyptians gave slightly religious meanings to the game. The original versions of the game were made from stone rather than wood. The current versions of the game are based on snippets of the original rules found in Ancient Egypt but it’s fair to say that there must be some differences between todays versions and the original Egyptian game play.

This version features a solid wooden board with a thirty square board pattern. The set has an amazing recessed inlay of the board pattern, the manufacturers could easily have silk printed it on, but instead they've gone to great lenghts to create a really lovely inlaid wooden playing surface. The game pieces are also solid wood and have been finished off to an extremely high standard.
