#rp @mister_imhotep Most people will say that chess as we know it today, has been invented in India. But in Kemet, games were part of religious life. The most popular game was Senat in which counters, or markers, were moved around a game board. Winning the game came by one player removing all of his/her pieces before the opponent did according to Zahi Hawass the Egyptian Egyptologist. We all know this game, it appears in all the movies about Kemet. In the 10 commandments, there is that scene when the princess beats the pharaoh playing that game. . That game symbolized the struggle between good and evil as well as stands magically for rebirth and resurrection. . The African games known as Mancala or Wari are among the oldest games, dating back at least to 5000 BC. In these games, beans, seeds, and other small objects were moved around a playing board with hollowed out cups. And the players tried to capture as many objects as possible. . Mancala, Senat and 4 other types of games were discovered within the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamen (18th dynasty). . In the British Museum, there is a Kemetic board game of primitive "checkers" from 1000 BC. . Another game called Nine Men's Morris was discovered into the roofing slabs of the temple at Kurna in Kemet. It dated back to c. 1400 BCE. The object of the game, of which there are many versions, is for each player to try to capture an opponent's piece and to prevent the opponent from moving any pieces. . Most Western scholars believe that chess originated in Pakistan as an offspring of a Hindu game under the Sanskrit name "Chaturanga" about 500 AD. . But if we look at the ancient African games, we can note how closely they resemble the Chess games we know today. We could say that the concept started and developed in Africa and that the Indu game was a mutation of what already existed in Africa. . What do you think about it? Do you agree with me? . . . .🎓@mister_imhotep .💫Rebranding Africa💫 . . . #blackconsciousness #blackexcellence #moors #blacklivesmatter #westafrica #beautiful #god #india #blackwomen #kinkyhair #africa #Melaninonfleek #naturalhaircommunity #blackhistorymonth #melanin #blackgoddess #blackpeopl
