Ancient Egyptians were hard workers, but they also had lots of playtime for board games and toys. The game snake was one of the first Ancient Egyptian games ever found. The stone board represented a snake coiled with its head in the centre. The winner was the first person who moved their piece from the snake’s tail to its head in the centre. The pieces were often carved with an early Ancient Egyptian pharaoh name. Also, a game like Senet was played mostly by adults and wealthy people. Mancala was probably played more by poor families because they could just dig holes in the earth and use stones as game pieces. Wooden dolls or animals were more expensive.
