Favor of the Pharaoh is a tile-building, dice-rolling game where each player is attempting to gain the Pharaoh's favor. Work your way up through Egyptian society gathering dice and powers to gain entry to the next social level. 

Each turn you gain new contacts and influence, these contacts give you more dice to roll of special powers to adjust those dice. 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 reply value. 

Once any player gains the Queen's influence, a final roll-off occurs for the Pharaoh's favor. 

Game contents:

  • 63 Populace tiles
  • 36 Priesthood tiles
  • 36 Artifact tiles
  • 4 Start tiles
  • 1 Wooden Pharaoh token
  • 4 Locking pyramids
  • 3 Extra die tokens
  • 62 Scarab tokens
  • 5 Double-sided level bars
  • 12 Standard red dice
  • 8 Immediate frosted dice 
  • 6 Unique custom dice
  • 1 Rules booklet
  • 1 Reference guide

Favor of the Pharaoh is a game for 2-4 players, average game time of 45 minutes and recommended for ages 13+

Let me jut begin by saying that Favor of the Pharaoh comes with a great insert for storing the million-odd tiles that you get with it. This insert is brilliant because not only does it store all the components neatly, it also saves you time when setting up the game as you simply go through each section to lay the appropriate tiles. All board games should come with inserts like this one. Publishers, take note!

Favor of the Pharaoh is similar to the old Yahtzee classic in that you have to roll dice to get certain combinations which will allow you to buy more tiles. The more tiles you acquire, the more dice you get to roll and the more abilities you will have at your disposal. As you work your way up, you will become more powerful until you reach the Queen's space and (hopefully) claim and retain the Pharaoh token to win. It works well and the game is very enjoyable.

Unlike some other games (I'm looking at you, Champions of Midgard!), the dice in this game are good quality and the spots are well painted. Good quality components do make a difference to the gaming experience and it is obvious when the manufacturer has taken short cuts to save money, which is not the case here so well done Bezier Games.

Overall, I would recommend Favor of the Pharaoh if you enjoy dice chuckers. Yes, there is a good element of luck but that is the nature of the beast. This is a quick and easy game to play which makes it ideal for families and casual gamers. Check it out.
