The concept of ‘games’ is even more prehistoric than the idea of the toy. Dating back more than five millennia in the hieroglyphs of Predynastic Egypt is the first game known to man, Senet. Senet takes place on a grid of 30 squares, arranged in three rows of ten. Similar to chess, Senet requires strategy and thought in the movement of several draughtsmen across the board with the help of dice-like sticks or bones (Piccione, 1980). With the end goal of personal enjoyment.
Games are a vital part of all cultures and are one of the most ancient forms of human social interaction. Characterised by competition, the uncertainty of outcome and predetermined rules.
