Hounds And Jackals
Hounds And Jackals
A game which is called Hounds and Jackals nowadays, may be the original 'Game of the Goose' or 'Snakes and Ladders'. The oldest board found dates from the First Intermediate Period. It was seemingly played with five pieces per player, one using five hound-like, the other five jackal-like pieces.
The another Hounds and Jackals board on the right is even older, dating from the 9th dynasty.
