Inspired by Amun, the great god of Egyptian Civilization Play the games that will connect you to your roots and your ancestors who believed that the throw of dice was not a random chance event but controlled by the will Gods. Carved on the walls of temples and tombs, passed down over generations, spanning thousands of years, these traditional and ancient games have paved the way for the new age ofboard games.

Here are three of the gaming boards inscribed on the temple at Kurna in Egypt (1400 B.C.)

Alquerque: it is possibly the forerunner of Checkers or Draughts.Known as Zamma in Egypt, it appeared as an Arab game, El-Quirkat, and later under its Spanish name Alquerque in the famous 'Book of Games' compiled by King Alfonso X (1251-1282 A.D.)

Merels: is a game of alignment, a sophisticated cousin of the trivial Noughts and Crosses or Tic Tac Toe. It is popular as NineMen's Morris or Mill.

Mancala: It is often called the National game of Africa. Alsoknown as Pallangulli and Oware, Mancala is not one game but at least two hundred games linked by a fundamental play system.

As you play these games, you will be presented with nuggets of history,that have been especially prepared by the ancient masters, for yourlearning pleasure.
