I really like to play board games but it's been getting harder and harder to find people to play with. People just don't want to spend the time playing board or card games anymore. In order to combat this, I've been keeping an eye out for short games that can be played with only a couple of people in a short amount of time." Oh, Pharaoh!" by Uberplay fits the bill nicely.
The requirements state the game is for 3 to 4 players, can be played in 40 minutes and it's for ages 10 and up. Even though the game says you need at least three players, I've successfully played it with two.The game is quick, fun and the artwork is hilarious. The components are all top notch too, so that's a plus. The bad news is Uberplay went out of business in 2008. Nobody has yet to announce they are picking up publishing rights for "Oh, Pharaoh!" so if you want to get a copy you'll have to hit eBay or boardgamegeeks.com. Good Luck!
