Khet 2.0 is a game that combines lasers with strategy. Four Egyptian-themed pawns are used during game play, including Pharaoh, Anubis, Pyramid and Scarab. Some pawns will have one or two mirrored surfaces, while others have none.
Pawns can be moved forward, backward, left, right or diagonally. Additionally, they can stay in the same square and rotate a quarter twist. However, once a pawn has been moved, a real laser diode built into each player’s Sphinx piece is fired. Be careful, because anytime a laser hits a non-mirrored surface on a playing piece, that piece is removed from the game. The object of the game is to illuminate your opponent’s pharaoh, and keep yours safely in play.
A combination of checkers and chess, this game features eye-safe lasers. Learning to play is easy, and batteries for the game are included. Khet 2.0 is recommended for ages 9-99. It was selected as a Toy of the Year Finalist, and was a Mensa Select national competition winner.
