Fascinating entry.
I am not sure whether the name of the entry is being used for a single game or as a collection of games that were excavated from the same area an date.

Specifically
is not immediately recognisable as the same game as the other images and descriptions here.

There is so little known about this game that it is really hard to say much about the pictures. I think that this entry is really more for the family of games found at Jiroft which may or may not share similar rules. Since there really is nowhere else to put that picture, it is probably best if it stays in this entry.

Traditional games that have survived the test of time and ancient games that have not are a part of our heritage.

m'n - the Egyptian hieroglyph for board game, also signifying "stability" and used phonetically as in the last syllable of "Tutankhamun"

The board with three rows of spaces, each with two sets of six spaces, is functionally the same as the Roman board game, Duodecim Scriptorum.

The eagle board with twenty spaces is functionally the same as the Ancient Middle Eastern game, Aseb.
