Description [fr]

Un portage informatique du jeu de Khet, par le studio BlueLine Games.
Il utilise le framework FNA.

Khet 2.0 est un portage 3D mono et multijoueur du jeu de Khet, un jeu de stratégie au tour par tour sur tablier, proche des échecs (et ayant des similitudes avec Laser Chess) dont l'objectif est d'atteindre le pharaon adverse d'un rayon laser.

Une version sous Licence officielle du jeu de plateau primé et sélectionné par l'organisme "Mensa" ! (NdT : le jeu de Khet)
Khet 2.0 est un jeu de Laser époustouflant et amusant pour les joueurs de 9 à 99 ans. Utilisant des règles simples qui peuvent être apprises en quelques minutes, les joueurs déplacent à tour de rôle des pièces réflectives sur un thème égyptien, après quoi ils tirent leur laser avec pour objectif d'exploser le Pharaon de leur adversaire pour remporter la partie !

Le jeu de Khet :

Alternativement les joueurs déplacent leurs pièces comportant éventuellement une ou deux faces miroirs.
Les possibilités de mouvements des pièces (4 types sur un thème égyptien : pharaon, obélisque, pyramide, pilier Djed) sont :
avant, arrière, gauche, droite, diagonale, rotation d'1/4 de tour.
Chaque tour s'achève par un tir de l'un des lasers intégré à l'échiquier. Ce rayon est réfléchi par les miroirs jusqu'à rencontrer une pièce non réfléchissante qui est alors ôtée du jeu.
Chaque joueur doit protéger son pharaon tout en essayant d'atteindre le pharaon adverse.

Description [en]

Officially licensed version of the “Mensa Select” award-winning board game!

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!

Khet 2.0 is our version of the Mensa Select award-winning table top game that comes with real lasers!. Khet has been described as “laser-chess”. This Turn-Based strategy game is our second major Steam release. Built on the same BlueLine Board Game Engine as Hive, it has all of the same features and beautiful 3D rendering you’d expect. The Egyptian theme fits very well and looks gorgeous on the sandstone background.

Once you’ve gained some mastery on the three board layouts of the main game, you can try out the first-ever digital implementation of the Beam Splitter expansion. While it’s not recommended until you’re proficient at the game, this upgrade adds five new board layouts and two new pieces that let you split the single beam into two or even three beams! Things can get dangerous very quickly with that many lasers zipping across the board.

Khet is a chess-like abstract strategy board game using lasers that was formerly known as Deflexion. Players take turns moving Egyptian-themed pieces around the playing field, firing their low-powered laser diode after each move. Most of the pieces are mirrored on one or more sides, allowing the players to alter the path of the laser through the playing field. When a piece is struck by a laser on a non-mirrored side, it is eliminated from the game. A few elements of the gameplay, therefore, are slightly similar to the computer game Laser Chess.

Under its original name, the game was a Mensa Select Award winner. Its name was changed on September 15, 2006. The new game retains the same rules of gameplay, but has a different design, including a new color scheme and a new box design. Under the new name, the game was one of five finalists for the 2007 Toy of the Year award.
