Oh Pharaoh is a highly competitive hand management, where everyone is trying to simultaniously build pyramids and prevent others from doing so. It reminds me a bit of Babel, in that it can be very cutthroat and you attack each others buildings. What makes Oh Pharaoh even better, however, is that it accomodates more players and it has a fun and challenging negotiation element built in.
Nice little set collecting game where the players race to build the largest pyramids for the Pharaoh. Watch out for thieves though, which can knock your most valuable pyramids nearly to the ground! Lots of familiar mechanics are combined into one good little game. Recommended as a light filler in between some of the heavier games you might play.
