How premium is it?
It has high attention to details in terms of look and feel the eagle board game, snake pot and the dice are almost identical to the original but with few artistic touch to make it a bit modern and ancient.
Is this set really played during Ancient time?
Yes, the oldest one dates back to 3000BC discovered in Burnt City
How do you know this is the game board?
It can’t be anything else as there are numbers of the board game discovered in Jiroft and the one discovered in the Burnt city, the style is very similar to those are in Jiroft. Archaeologist Jean Perrot noted in the Persian Journal article, the lay-out of the "holes" on the “eagle" game boards is highly suggestive of the twenty squares game boards excavated by Woolley in Sumer, the so-called "Royal Game of Ur."
