9. Ancient Egyptians loved playing board games. The most popular of these was senet which was often put in tombs when people died, so that it could be played in the afterlife. 
Many boards with their pawns and throw sticks have survived intact, but nobody knows exactly how it was played. 
Look closely at the board: can you imagine how senet was played?
CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve found all the items for the pharaoh to arrive safely in his afterlife. Please return your phone to the Samsung Digital Discovery Centre.
