Description

The Laser Game Khet 2.0: Mind blowing laser fun for players ages 9-99. Using simple rules that can be learned in minutes players alternate turns moving Egyptian themed mirrored pieces, after which they fire their laser with the goal of blasting their opponents Pharaoh to win the game!

History

The board game 'Khet' (originally called 'Deflexion') came out in 2005 to critical acclaim and has grown a steady following since then. In 2011, a more portable version with improved rules was released: 'Khet 2.0'. Years after Geoff first introduced Sean to Khet in college, the BlueLine Games developers knew that this was a game that would be perfect for a computer version. Khet was one of the main reasons that BlueLine chose to pursue digital conversions of board games. Three years after the founding of BlueLine Games, this small Indie Dev team's vision has finally become a reality!
