This review is from: Khet 2.0 Laser Strategy Game (Toy)
This is a game well worth waiting for and you will have fun playing it. You will find it is quicker to pick up than Chess and once you get used to the mirrors you will love playing this game. I bought the game after waiting ages for it to get to the UK, then played it with my friends, who are now addicted to it.
You move a piece one at a time and then fire the laser. If it hits a mirror piece (a Djed or Pyramid) the beam reflects off in a straight line until it either hits the wall or a non reflecting piece (an Obelisk or Pharaoh), which is taken off the board. If it hits a Pharaoh, that is GAME OVER-even if you hit your own Pharaoh! The Pyramid or Djed can move a quarter turn (90 degrees) left or right which can change the game. You have a basic set up for the start of the game and can chose up to 3 other starts. Silver always starts first. The side of the board has silver and red squares in a row and where Red can not go on to a silver square and vis versa. Opposite the row colours are two corner squares of the opposite colour and this means that you can block a piece.
The side of the board has hieroglyphs on it for decoration.
Later you can add pieces to the game to make it more exiting.
All in all a very addictive game and fun.
