A game of mehen being played by a eunuch guard and a very smart baboon (perhaps Thoth in disguise). Mehen was called the snake game because the board was in the form of a coiled snake and was played in ancient Egypt. Although the exact rules are unknown it is believed to be a type of race game where players tried to get their bead pieces back before being devoured by the opposing players lion pieces. The mehen board and baboon player were sculpted by Andy Pieper and the eunuch guard by Kev Adams. This is one of the sets available as part of the Legend of Cleopatra Indiegogo campaign.
