Laser Beam A Pharoh Just Like The Ancient Egyptians!

My wife, son and I love to play chess. My six year old daughter is learning too. KHET 2.0 takes chess and turns it into laser tag, but strategy and forethought are still the keys to winning. It's a little easier to learn than chess, but no less complex or hard to master. A simple quarter-turn of a piece can be either a defensive or offensive move, or both! Kids will be attracted to the hi-tech component, but it is a game for all ages. The basic premise is to hit your opponent's pharaoh with a laser controlled by moving your mirrored pieces around the board and dispatching the enemy pieces in your way. It can be as easy as a game of checkers or as complex as a good game of chess.

Having played both this and the original KHET, I find I like this one better. It's much more travel friendly. The laser/mirrors are better aligned (on my set) and they are now movable. It doesn't hurt that less expensive either. Sadly, the TOWER OF KADESH and Khet - Eye of Horus Beamsplitter add-ons doesn't work with 2.0. However, there is enough complexity with the basic game to satisfy and challenge all but the most hardcore player. I recommend getting KHET 2.0 if you want a travel version. Or get the original set if you want to really invest in the game and its expansions. Good luck though, the original KHET (Deflection) game sets are getting harder and harder to find, and mine isn't for sale! ;)
