The Ancient Egyptian enjoyed a wide range of sports and games - young men chased lions and ostriches across the desert, while dignified married couples relaxed over a game of 'senet'. Children played with balls and dolls. Even the Egyptian kings took their own sporting prowess very seriously - as living demi-gods they were expected to dominate the sports field just as they dominated every other sphere of Egyptian life.
