    I saw a great video with Tom Scott on how to play The Royal Game of Ur and it really got me interested in these ancient, sometimes lost games. The small controversy over how to play the Egyptian games Senet was fun to follow too (the modified rules and play style I thing seems much more accurate and plausible). I tried checking out some others too but they seemed either boring or nonsensical to me…maybe I’m just not smart enough game-knowledge-wise to get them. Either way it’s fun to see what was or may have been way back when!
