Khet is a board game with four types of playing pieces, two of them equipped with mirrors. There are only there movement choices in the simple game, and the goal is to eliminate your opponent’s Pharaoh – by firing a red laser.
Each side of the board is equipped with its own laser, which you press after your turn. The laser bounces from mirror to mirror (always shooting off at a 90 degree angle). If the laser hits any piece on a non-reflective surface, that piece is removed from play.
If you eliminate your opponent’s Pharaoh, you win. If you eliminate your own Pharaoh, you will be mocked for all time.
The Khet Laser Game is available from ThinkGeek for $37.99. (Update: Link removed because the product is gone. However, you can get Khet V2.0 at Best Buy and Walmart.)
