Pah Tum is a two-player abstract strategy board game from Mesopotamia and Assyria. Ancient boards have been found at dig sites. The game is at least 3,800 years old (1800 B.C.) making it one of the oldest board games in history. A board made of ivory was discovered in the tomb of Reny-Seneb, XII dynasty, and dated at around 1800 BC. The board is a 7x7 square board. An odd number of squares are randomly closed off for play. These squares are called "black holes". Players alternate turns placing their pieces on the remaining squares attempting to create as many lines horizontally or vertically. The lines must be at least 3 squares long to score any points. The longer the line, the more points are scored for that line. The winner is the player with the most points.
