This two to four-player race game uses a Mehen board (a spiral of 64 squares). The designer kept the random aspect (which he's done otherwise only with his Pharao game), but used a standard die instead of the Ancient Egyptian throwing sticks. Each player has three pieces which he tries to bring all the way in to the serpent's head. I don't think you can take opposing pieces (sending them back to the serpent's tail), but it seems you can form blockages and maybe even you can move back and forth as desired.
Check out the beautiful board at Pharao-Brettspiele's home page.
