This is the the oldest board game known today - it dates back to 3,500 BC and was invented by the Egyptians. The rules have not survived so I have felt free to create my own version.

I move the purple pieces - you move the blue ones. The aim is to move all your pieces along the path and off the other end before I do. Your dice throw specifies how far you can move one of your pieces.

You cannot move onto one of your own pieces.

If you move onto one of my pieces, the pieces swap places unless my piece has a neighbour.

All quite simple but surprisingly challenging!
