Senet Taracea


Senet goes back several millennia, transporting us to Ancient Egypt; to a time when it was a popular game among all classes. The meaning of its own name points to a "Passage" or "Transit"; a fight between good and evil, between two rivals.

The Senet board is divided into 30 squares or "peru", which are covered with pieces that seem to resemble chess pawns or checkers. And, like dice, what might otherwise look like simple toothpicks with a convex side and a completely smooth side.

By using a limited color palette, the design of Juegos de la Antigüedad seeks to bridge the gap between another time and the present, as a continuity in human experience.
