Riddle of the sphinx
The Riddle Of The Sphinx is a unique game from the land of Egypt. It is one of the oldest games in the world and was probably first played by ancient Egyptian pharaohs thousands of years ago. However, there are many versions of the Riddle Of The Sphinx that have survived from those earlier times and some are much better than others. In this article I will try to describe the different types of the game and how to play them.
The Riddle Of The Sphinx is played with two players on each side of a rectangular board. Each player receives one face up card and they must work their way from the ace to the king without seeing another player or drawing an ace from the deck. There are four suits of cards and the key to win is to learn how to quickly figure out what to suit the other players are holding by simply looking at their hands. The aim is to get to the sphinx before they have time to look at their cards and make any decisions. Although this sounds like an easy task, it can be very difficult especially if you do not know how to riddle correctly.
Although the aim of the game is to get to the sphinx before time runs out, you should also avoid the traps commonly laid out by the opponents. One of the most common strategies is to use the riddle of the Sphinx as a time-limit and try to trick the opponents into thinking that you have an ace in the hand, or perhaps an ace and three cards facing them. This is a great strategy as it usually catches players off guard and prevents them from doing their usual routine of betting and raising. If you can master this one then you will definitely be the winner!
