About This File

This is a scripted multiplayer version of the board game senet from Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation for JKA.
The current version needs at least 2 players for it to work.

 

The map was just a random idea of mine, it is a lovely game however, so if you want to try something unusual while
playing JK with your friends, go for it! :) It can offer some fun for social events as well if pawns are replaced
by actual players with 2 leaders to move them. (Thanks to Iceblade for the idea!)

*Game Rules*

WARNING: Due to an oddity in the game's engine, you should roll about 5-6 times with the dice each time the map is loaded/reloaded before playing in order to make sure the generated numbers are random; otherwise the first few numbers will always be the same.

 

At the start of the game, each player chooses their pawns (Red, Green, Blue or Orange, Brown, Yellow). Then they
must roll with the dice (a button in the middle) to get a starting number. The player with the bigger number
rolls first.

 

Once the first roll is done, the player must choose a pawn to move (by pressing USE on one of the coloured tiles).
There is an ingame hint that indicates the direction the pawns are going, but you can check the included jpg as
well. Once the first player finished his turn, the second one rolls and so on...

 

If you roll 6 or your pawn moves to a special tile (every 4th tile with a darker texture), you get an extra turn.

 

Be warned that two pawns cannot occupy the same area: if you move your pawn where your opponent's piece is,
it will be sent back to the start. If it is your own pawn however, you will have to choose another one to move.

 

You need an exact number to move your pieces to the goal. If it so happens that you cannot move any of your pawns,
your turn ends. Then your opponent can choose whether he wants to reroll or use the same number you rolled.

 

The game ends when a player takes all of their pieces to the final tile.

 

Have fun! :P
