Chess...with frickin' laser beams!

I just came across a BoingBoing post about Deflexion,

a chess-like board game that involves bouncing a laser. Basically, it's

a one-on-one game where each side gets a few Egyption-themed pieces,

the most significant of which is a Pharaoh. The object of the game is

the blast your opponent's Pharaoh by redirecting the gameboard's

component laser beam. The other pieces--pyramids, obelisks, and

djedds--serve to block or bounce the beam. In short: it's a tactical

board game where you strategize to kill a pharaoh with a laser beam.


Ahem. "Dear Santa..."
