The Senet, invented in ancient Egypt, is one of the oldest games known. This board game made ​​of wood by hand is inspired by the Senet of Amenhotep III (fourteenth century BC) which is now on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum in New York. A more modern reference to the game Senet is in the American show Lost where, in the sixth season, Jacob character plays a game with a Senet board located on the beach.

The game of Senet was very popular in all the social statements in Ancient Egypt. Several board games or references to Senet were found in royal tombs such as Tutankamon's tomb, Nefertari's or Amenothep's.

Some archaeologinst are also supporting the hypothesis that Egyptian people attributed to the Senet a magical or symbolic character and the game was a reference to the Book of the Dead, representing the Judgment of Osiris, the victory of the deceased and the entry into the Duat.

J'ai beaucoup apprécié cet article que j'ai acheté à mon compagnon pour son anniversaire, il en est très satisfait et il nous tarde de l'essayer ! Le jeu est joliment réalisé, je m'attendais à une peinture à l'aspect peut-être un peu plus vieilli mais la qualité est quand même très plaisante et les symboles sont joliment réalisés, quand aux pièces elles sont magnifiques ! La commande est arrivée vite. Merci beaucoup pour votre travail, je n'hésiterai pas à revenir vers vous pour de nouveaux achats de ce type ;)
