There are some bad signs on the floor of an old cattle lodge in Azerbaijan, which are examples of Hounds and Jackals, one of the most famous ancient times.

Like ABC report, archaeologist Walter Crist, an American science museum (and a writer, specifically from Egyptian board game) made a finding when the locals were uncertain about what strange labels actually meant.

Hounds and Jackals, otherwise known as 58 holes, is an ancient game that was incredibly popular in Egypt and Mesopotamia so much that there is a 1956 epic Ten Commandments.

This discovery is the first in the area because there was no previously played game. It suggests that local farmers would be in contact with Middle East merchants who would have known and even copied it with the game.

What does it No Tell archaeologists how the game really works; as long as we can guess that's backgammon and Cribbage in advance, nobody has ever made a 23-minute YouTube video or left a PDF-format, so we may never know for sure.
