Holy crap, this board game is the best.  Thanks for mentioning it on the forums Kobra.

I have owned a copy of this for a long time, since before it became Khet, and the pieces were all gold and silver. 

In that time, I have not won a game of it, ever, against anybody.  It reminds me that I am insanely bad at abstract strategy games, like chess, and I should never, ever play them. 

And yet, I can't bring myself to get rid of it because, dude, LASERS!

Khet rox all games, period.

It was Deflexion in a previous life, but Khet apparently has some improvements.  Better packaging, better manuals, stronger lasers, and 2 extra blocking pieces for better strategy.

Also don't forget to get the expansion to Khet.   icon_biggrin

A Yankee Swap with friends has been mostly hijacked by the ladies and become "gender neutral" (read: vacuum cleaners, blankets, toothbrushes instead of DVDs, and games).  But board games are often included there.  I think I might just pick this one up, wrap it and try to take it myself -- looks like a good find!

What's the point of that sort of swap thing when you would rather just buy the game for yourself?  You have 100% chance of walking home with what you want if you don't bother with that.

Well this way there is a chance I'll get something I actually want out of the swap, versus a vacuum cleaner or electric toothbrush.  Funds a bit tight after Christmas, so otherwise I have 0 chance of really getting it until February...

Just curious... how easy is it to see the lasers?  Does playing it in a brightly lit room make it impossible?

You see the lasers illuminate the pieces or when it hits a wall.

We have a smoke machine from Halloween, we play with that aiming down on the table and the lights dimmed... Looks totally rad...

I played it with my wife once... she complained about having to figure out where the laser would go and we haven't played it again. I was saddened... and I kicked her ass soundly. slywink
