In Favor of the Pharaoh, 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.
