Favor-of-the-Pharoah-Cover-800

Bezier Games has announced their latest title “Favor of the Pharaoh.  This reimagining of the game “To Court the King” by designer Tom Lehmann expands upon the original game play making for a more varied game.  Centered around moving up the social ladder in ancient Egypt this game is all about strategically working your prowess to outwit your oponents.

Designed for 2-4 players and taking about 45 minutes this should be a nice medium length game.  In addition it is heavily dice dependent which may influence how much you enjoy this game.  This game also appears to be on e that will have the great standup dice roll moments on a semi-regular basis which is not necessarily something you see in this length of a game.

Publishers description below

In “Favor of the Pharaoh” (2-4 players, 45 minutes) from Bezier Games, Inc., players roll dice to advance in Egyptian society, each turn gaining a new contact and more influence. These contacts give players more dice to roll or special powers to adjust those dice. The game culminates in a tense final roll-off as players vie for the Pharaoh’s favor.

This re-imagining of Tom Lehmann’s earlier game “To Court the King” boasts over 50 different characters, each of whom has a unique ability. In each game, only 21 of those characters are used, increasing variety and replay value. Also new are 6 different custom dice with special abilities, special Immediate dice, and bonus tokens that are used to tweak players’ rolls.

More than 100 sturdy tiles depict the characters with easy-to-read imagery. Double-sided level bars organize them and vary their claiming requirements from game to game, while pyramid-shaped dice frames hold players’ locked dice. For the final roll-off, notched slots mark the high roll, while the current leader holds the wooden Pharaoh token.

To store everything, the game comes in a big box (Ticket to Ride size) with an insert. Re-developed and expanded by Ted Alspach and Tom Lehmann, Bezier Games, Inc. will be publishing “Favor of the Pharaoh” at Essen 2015.
