Duodecim Scripta

Duodecim Scripta aka "The Game of Twelve Lines" is described by Murray (1952) as being similar to backgammon, where the object of the game is to get 15 game pieces to a finishing  position, their moves being determined by three D6s. An example of the board, game pieces and a box containing three dice were excavated from a 4th century AD tomb in Qustul.
