A reminder that people in all time periods share the same need for entertainment and games. This is an ancient Egyptian board game called ‘Hounds and Jackals’, complete with game board and pieces. From the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Many more board games have been found in ancient Egyptian burials, including another popular one called Senet. You can read up on it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senet
