One Pharaoh to rule them all… and only one player with the proper influence to rule him.
Last week, Bezier Games teased a new game set in Egypt. Many wondered if this new game was tied to another Bezier title, Suburbia. Well, that weeklong mystery was solved as, today, Bezier announced Favor of the Pharaoh.
Developed by Tom Lehmann (Race for the Galaxy, Pandemic: On the Brink), Favor of the Pharaoh is a reworking of his 2006 game To Court the King.
Favor of the Pharaoh is a dice game where you are roll and gain new contacts who provide more influence over the Pharaoh. Each game has 21 characters to influence, but the box comes with 50, allowing for some variety each time you play. And about those dice, six unique special ability dice come with the set but “special Immediate dice.” Though dice rolling adds a lot of randomness, you will be able to spend tokens that can alter your rolls.
Available for pre-order now and releasing this October at the Spiel in Essen, Germany, Favor of the Pharaoh comes in a big box, with custom insert to properly fit all its bits. Sounds promising.
