You are one of Pharaoh's children. Your life is dedicated to preparing your passage into the afterlife: to surround yourself with craftsmen and nobles, to build the most sumptuous burial chamber, to make offerings to the Gods and to satisfy their demands. Anticipate the movements of the Wheel, watch your opponents and play at the right tempo to win the game.

A Pharaoh game lasts 5 rounds, in which the players sequence the turns until all have passed. In turn, a player performs one of the 5 actions on the board. They are used to win Prestige Points (PP) that will determine the winner at the end of the game, but they are also used to take resources for subsequent rounds. To take an action, the player must pay his Access Cost, by spending the resource indicated by the Action Wheel, opposite the Neighborhood where he wants to act. It then pays the Cost of Action by spending the corresponding resources. The resource paid on the Wheel to access this Neighborhood is deducted from the Cost of Action, if it matches. It is therefore necessary to anticipate the movements of the Wheel in order to carry out the actions at the best cost. But the number of each action is limited and your opponents can have similar views. Finally the Gods keep a close eye on the game. You will have to satisfy as many of them as possible to attract their favours and earn PP bonuses.

Highlights: The sensations of an expert game with refined rules. An original mechanism of the Share Wheel. Solo mode.
