What's new here?

We have recently added KHET to our product lineup! Khet has been around for a while but was always a bit on the expensive side. But the makers of Khet have now realeased Khet 2.0, which is a much more affordable game!

Like the best strategy games, Khet is very easy to learn but hard to master. Each side is given a special ‘Sphinx’  laser piece that ‘fires’ when you press it’s head. You also have several mirror ‘pyramid’ pieces,  a couple of ‘Scarab’ pieces with mirrors on either side, a ‘Pharoh’ piece (which acts as the ‘King’ of the game to be protected), and a ‘Anubis’ piece that is used to block the laser.  Players take turns positioning, rotating, and firing to try and illuminate the opponents Pharoh. Sounds easy? It is, but the possible reflections and positions make for endless possibilities int he game. You can even change the startup positions of the pieces at the beginning of the game to make for a different experience!

Khet is an excellent strategy game that works on the principles of optics. An option game addition can be obtained that turns the ‘Scarab’ pieces from mirrors into beamsplitters that send 1/2 the light through and reflect the remainder.  That makes a huge change in the tactics of the game!
