Khet 2.0: A Laser Battle for the Ages

Prepare yourself for a mind-bending laser battle with Khet 2.0, a futuristic strategy game that combines simple rules with Egyptian-themed mirrored pieces and laser-firing action. Perfect for players ages 9 to 99, Khet 2.0 is a game that will challenge your mind and provide hours of laser-blasting fun.

Gameplay Overview

Khet 2.0 is played on a hexagonal board with mirrored tiles. Players take turns moving their Egyptian-themed pieces, which include Pharaohs, Scarabs, and Pyramids. Each piece has a unique movement pattern, and players must use strategy and foresight to position their pieces in a way that will allow them to fire their laser and blast their opponent’s Pharaoh.


  • Hexagonal game board with mirrored tiles
  • 2 Pharaoh pieces
  • 4 Scarab pieces
  • 8 Pyramid pieces
  • 2 Laser pointers


To set up the game, place the hexagonal game board on a flat surface. Each player chooses a color and takes the corresponding Pharaoh, Scarab, and Pyramid pieces. Players then place their Pharaoh piece in the center of their side of the board, and their Scarab and Pyramid pieces in any of the other hexagonal spaces.


Players take turns moving one of their pieces and then firing their laser. Pieces can move one space in any direction, including diagonally. Scarabs can also move by “leapfrogging” over other pieces, including their own. Pyramids can move by rotating 90 degrees in place.

After moving a piece, the player can fire their laser. The laser beam travels in a straight line until it hits another piece, a wall, or the edge of the board. If the laser beam hits an opponent’s Pharaoh, that player loses the game.


Khet 2.0 is a game of strategy and foresight. Players must carefully consider their moves and the potential consequences before they act. Here are a few tips to help you win:

  • Control the center of the board. This will give you more options for moving your pieces and firing your laser.
  • Use your Scarabs to leapfrog over other pieces and get into position to fire your laser.
  • Use your Pyramids to block your opponent’s laser beams and to create new paths for your own laser.
  • Don’t be afraid to sacrifice pieces to protect your Pharaoh.


Khet 2.0 comes with several variations that can change the gameplay. For example, you can play with a time limit, or you can add obstacles to the board. You can also create your own variations to make the game more challenging or more fun.


Khet 2.0 is a fantastic laser battle game that is perfect for players of all ages. With its simple rules and challenging gameplay, Khet 2.0 is a game that you’ll come back to time and time again. So gather your friends and family, and get ready for a mind-blowing laser battle!
