A Game from Ancient Egypt

Games of Ancient Egypt

The Jewel of Osiris
The evil god Set wanted to seize the jewel of Osiris, but the followers of Osiris kept it safe by throwing it to each other. To play the game “Jewel of Osiris” you will need a ball and three or more players. One of the players becomes Set, the others are the followers of Osiris. The followers stand around Set. One of the followers of Osiris has the ball, the jewel, and throws it to another follower of Osiris. If Set manages to touch the ball he changes places with the follower of Osiris who threw the ball. The game then continues with the new Set.
