Trivia: The Xmas gift for the Egyptomaniac who has everything?


No matter what technology produces, one form of entertainment will remain timeless. For centuries, board games have held the title of perfect pastime. And, while the games seem perennial in their current form, combining technology with a classic formula could just produce a unique new experience.

The Khet Laser Board Game hopes to give players a new twist on a familiar formula. Two players play this Egyptian themed board game. One takes command of the red pieces while the other commands the white. Players are given a “pharaoh” piece, obelisks pieces and pyramid pieces. Each turn players must protect their pharaoh piece while moving other pieces around the board. Sure, this sounds a lot like chess but it quickly becomes apparent that this is no chess.
