Seega game is similar to checkers whereby you try to capture your opponent's pieces. The game ends when a player (the looser) has only one piece left.
Egypt was a source of many interesting games in ancient times.
Seega was apparently unknown in the 17th century but became popular in the early 19th century only to decline in its homeland late in the 20th.
The game was more a pastime of the poor than the rich.
Seega Boards were scratched into the temple stones at Kurna, but they appear to be relatively recent & of poor quality.
Seega Game is especially interesting as it resembles games played in ancient Greece and Rome - Petteia and Latrunculi.
Ceramic or pottery refers to a process of forming, firing or baking, and glazing or decorating a mixture of clay and other materials, then refiring it to harden the glaze.
The three ceramics are earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.
Stoneware is made from a particular type of clay that is fired at high temperatures, generally up to 2,372 °F (or 1,300 °C).
Stoneware, named after its dense stone like quality after firing, is tougher and more durable.
