Play a game of Mehan. Game is available on table near classroom window.
The Ancient Egyptian Board Game Mehan, or Snake
Mehan was a popular game for the lower classes because the game board could be drawn or carved into any surface, including a dirt floor. Wealthier Egyptians had game tables made on a pedestal, resembling a mushroom. A snake is coiled around the board and players start at the tail. The body of the snake is split into squares; a typical snake had about 60 squares to push through. The object is to be the first to move your piece from the tail to the snake’s head. Up to six players used lions and lionesses and ball pieces to maneuver around the board.
