Product Description

Product Description

It's the game that combines lasers with classic strategy. Players alternate turns moving Egyptian-themed pieces having two, one or no mirrored surfaces. All four types of pieces (pharaoh, anubis, pyramid and scarab) can either move one square forward, back, left, right, or diagonal, or stay in the same square and rotate by a quarter twist. Each turn ends by firing the real laser diode built into each player's Sphinx piece. The laser beam bounces from mirror to mirror; if the beam strikes a non-mirrored surface on any piece, it is immediately removed from play. The ultimate goal is to illuminate your opponent's pharaoh, while shielding yours from harm!

Box Contains

  • 14 mirrors
  • 4 Scarab mirrors
  • 4 Anubis pieces
  • 2 Pharaoh pieces
  • 2 Sphinx pieces

    An excellent purchase that I'm very pleased with. The game is well designed, the instructions are clear and precise enough to get playing straight away.

    The complexity of the game is well pitched so that you can pick up the basics straight away, making it very accesible, but the level of strategy is deep enough so that you will develop new tricks and moves along the way to increase it's longevity.

    It's also incredibly addictive, which is not bad thing as it challenges you to use your brain power not only to plot your own moves, but to try to counteract your opponent also.

    There are several different starting positions, each with varying balance between attack and defence. Having played the game a number of times I'm confident to say that it does not seem to get repetitive, and game rarely follow the same pattern. The "Eye of Horus" add on is a great purchase, slightly expensive for an extra 2 pieces, but adds a real depth of extra gameplay options.

    The only slight criticism I have, echoed in one of the previous reviews, is that the pieces aren't quite as robust and precisely made as they could be, there are occasions when the beam can become slightly off centre which means that it may not take the correct course at longer ranges.

    HOWEVER - With a bit of care, you can combat this - Take a few moments "testing" each piece at a distance from the beam, if you carefully press the mirrors one way or the other you can seem to "settle" them and align them better. If you do find that the beam is slightly out of line during a game, and can't settle the mirrors, try swapping the piece that seems to be affecting the beam's trajectory with another of the same pieces on the board.

    The concept of Khet is a brilliant strategy game uising lasers. You really need to know your angles of reflection to enjoy this. The fact that there are add on features to the basic pack (which is great in itself) incluing the extra Pillar make this an enduring masterpiece. It is fun and very easy to understand and pick up, may take a while to master and no two games should be the same.

    However, sadly it is rather let down by the quality of its manufacture. When using mirrors to reflect a beam of light around a board (some pieces even split the light for more fun); you need to be pretty accurate in both quality of the pieces and materials used. Unfortunately this is not the case with Khet, which concidering the price; you would expect. When using pieces like the 'Eye of Horus' (beam splitter), you need to mark out the path of the beams manually and this can get quite complicated especially if the beam is reflected off the board or somewhere it shouldn't be.

    Basically this is down to the simple fact that any divence of the beam to the norm; no matter how small to start with; will get worse each time the beam is bounced from piece to piece.

    Never the less: A Great Game just let down by 'some' shoddy workmanship and Quality Control.

    I would still recommend it.

    The concept of this game is great and is educational too. ...
    I have enjoyed playing it but the quality of the manufacture lets its donw in my case.
    The mirror angles are out on some pyramids meaning you have wayward lasers.
    The laser piece has a loose top whch means it satys on unless you fiddle with it to stay off.
    All in all I am disappointed with this purely becuas eof the quality of manufacture.

    This game sounds like fun. Unfortunately, I never got to find out. I have had to return this twice because of defaults.

    In both cases the Sphinx laser projector/pointer did not function correctly. First time around, the red sphinx's laser was really dull, and the silver one only worked intermittently. I returned the first one and asked for a replacement. This time the silver sphinx's laser did not function at all. I will be avoiding this game now, as I am not convinced of the build quality.

    These were the last two that amazon had remaining in stock, and both were faulty. Having now returned both, I notice that amazon's stock has gone up by two. Coincidence?

    Without functioning lasers this game is point(er)less!

    The fact I've given this game 4 stars despite the weak manufacturing is a testament to how much fun it is - mentally taxing like chess - but more accessible and, let's face it, much cooler.

    Unfortunately, the good news ends there. Only buy Khet 2.0 if you can take inevitable design flaws in your stride and still enjoy the good game that lies underneath. As other reviews have mentioned, the lasers do not reflect correctly at larger distances. Manufacturing for light reflection needs to be perfect - and it is not.

    Each piece should be at an exact 45 degree angle in order to reflect the light 90 degrees. It is probably true to say that the errors on each piece are fractional; but cumulatively, the error will become large (by the order of a few degrees). At large distances, this equates to the laser missing the piece it is supposed to hit entirely, taking out a fundamental element of the game. The pieces cannot easily be corrected.

    It seems to work at shorter distances, or with less reflections, so the game isn't entirely ruined - and when it does go wrong, you just have to study the route the beam should take, and explain it to your opponent. Not quite as much fun this way...
