Um belo modelo, muito original, do designer indonésio Julius Perdana, do site Paper Replika. Senet pode ser o mais antigo jogo de tabuleiro de todo o mundo. Foram encontradas evidências deste jogo em câmaras mortuárias do Período Pré-Dinástico e da Primeira Dinastia, por volta de 3500 aC e 3100 aC, respectivamente. Senet também apareceu em uma pintura do túmulo do Faraó Merknera (3300-2700 aC). Outra imagem deste jogo antigo foi encontrada no túmulo de Hesy (c. 2686-2613 aC), da Terceira Dinastia.
