Senet: Game of the Pharaohs . Senet has been one of my favourite games since I came across it a few years ago. Indeed it was the favourite game of Ancient Egyptian kings and has been found in many of their tombs. The exact rules they used aren't known and there are many variations of them today. The aim is to get all of your pieces to the last space representing the journey to the afterlife. So onto the model... . I wanted to give the model a very Egyptian aesthetic. The golden pyramids at the front are meant to look like the ones in Giza. At the back I built an image from the Book of the Dead depicting the god Anubis weighing the heart of the dead person against the Feather of Truth. This would determine how many lies the person told and whether or not they got to the afterlife. This overview of the board shows the pieces (cones and spools). The mushroom pieces (wich are meant to look like sand dunes) are safe spaces. You cannot be landed on when on a safe space. The blue piece inbetween is the House of Water. It will send you back to space 15. The yellow pieces at the side are actually throwing sticks, the Ancient Egyptian dice. The side they landed on when thrown determined how many spaces you could move. A little thing I built to hold the pieces that got to the afterlife. One last picture: Thanks for looking. I hope you liked it. Please rate and comment!
