KHET is a 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!
· PHARAOH has no mirrored sides, it is the most vulnerable piece of the game
· PYRAMID has one mirrored surface, it is mainly used for defense.
· SCARAB has two mirrored surfaces and hence cannot be eliminated.
· ANUBIS is weak at all sides but shielded from the front.
· SPHINX that fires lasers.
· Every piece can either move one square in any direction or stay in the same square and rotate by a quarter twist.
· Use mirrored surfaces for reflecting laser beams off the pieces
· Non-mirrored sides are vulnerable to laser attacks.
· There are silver and red game pieces on board. Silver starts first.
· SPHINX at the corner of the board can make a quarter turn. It is the only immovable piece on the board.
Simple as that, this game demands strategic thinking from players. With every new move or turn, WATCH OUT, the lasers could even eliminate your own pieces.
