Synopsis: Egyptian-themed chess with lasers
It’s an Silverlight version of a board game called Khet, which combines classic (chess like) strategy with a fun twist that uses lasers and mirrors. Players alternate turns moving Egyptian-themed pieces having two, one or no mirrored surfaces. All four types of pieces (pharaoh, obelisk, pyramid and djed column) can either move one square forward, back, left, right, or diagonal, or can stay in the same square and rotate by a quarter twist.
Each turn ends by firing one of the lasers built into the board. 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. Your objective is to fry your opponent’s pharaoh, while protecting yours from laser attack!
