In the tomb of King Tut there were several "SENET" games found. Does someone among you perhaps know if this game can still be found anywhere? It really intrigues me!

The UK amazon store sell it. Probably cheaper postage than buying it from the USA.

Yves, Amazon is probably your best bet as I doubt I can get hold of it for much less than that anyway. I'll have to import from Egypt which isn't always the cheapest once customs and excise and the VAT man have had a slice.
