  1. Fun!
    by RickC, - Feb 15th 2011

    This is an addictive little game. The achievements you can unlock in the full version are neat too. You get a few extra play modes like "flood" where the number of water squares on the board increases, some new pieces, etc. I don't know if I've unlocked everything though.

  2. Not very comprehensive, frustrating.
    by Timothy James McManamey, USA - Feb 12th 2011

    Though the rules for Senet are debatable, this version does not fit any of the major veins that I have played. The rule set that it uses causes for frustrating gameplay. Honestly, a good version of Senet should include game settings to allow for the variations in rule sets. This version does none of that.

  3. Senet is An amazing Game!
    by Jude Blank, USA - Feb 25th 2009

    Senet is an amazing game. Quick to learn, addictive to play. each round is short enough to play three or four rounds before your internal alarm clock goes off. but don't let the simplicity deceive you, there is a logic, and a rhythm and a pattern to the moves that must be established to take the win.

    I am not only purchasing the download, but as an artist making Senet boards after I graduate as gifts for my friends.

    Thanks Jeff Hanson for unearthing such a great find I give it five stars.
