Chess is my favorite board game. That probably makes me a nerd but whatever. I have a lot of fond memories of when my dad he would teach me the game. It took me a while to learn how “the horse guy” moved. I’d say his training paid off as I do alright with chess these days. I even won a tournament in my high school. Several months ago (during my short time at a job) I made a couple of friends that introduced me to a game they knew as Deflexion; better known now as Khet. To put it simply, Khet is chess with lasers. Instead of being based on medieval times with castles, knights and kings, Keht is more Egyptian based with obelisks, djed and pharaohs. Instead of capturing pieces by taking over the space they stand on, you have to strike them with one of the two lasers on the board. Several of the pieces have mirrors on them, so you have to stay on your toes of you may end up shooting your own piece. The game is rather obscure but a lot of fun if you like games that make you think. If you have somebody to play it with, maybe you should buy it.
