Senet, a board game from predynastic and ancient Egypt, is the oldest board game whose ancient existence has been confirmed, dating to circa 3500 BC.

The objective in Senet is to remove your pieces from the board before your adversary do the same, following a few rules, advancing your own pieces and catching or blocking your adversary’s ones.

It is a game for two opponents and consists of a board of three parallel rows with ten square squares each one and ten small pieces. Normally the pieces of both players were very different, being those of one of conical form and those of the other of carved cylindrical form.
