Senet Board 3D Model
This senet board dates from the New Kingdom and is made of cedar, and was therefore the property of a moderately wealthy household. There are thirty squares on the playing surface. The purpose of the game was to move your game pieces, called dancers, off the board in a serpentine pattern. Whoever got all their pieces off the board first was believed to become one with the god Re-Horakhty and be assured of an Afterlife or at least a very lucky day.
Date: 1549-1069 BCE
