A laser blasts through the air and strikes a mirrored surface. Reflected at a 90 angle, it continues on, bouncing from one mirror to the next until coming to a dead stop on the non-mirrored surface of a playing piece. The triumphant strategist removes the "illuminated" piece from the board, while his opponent scrambles to ensure that the prize his pharaoh is safe from future "illumination" while endeavoring to adjust the mirrors to his advantage for his own attack. Two pharaohs are present on the board, and the goal is to illuminate your opponent's pharaoh with your laser. Your turn consists of moving one of your pieces either to an adjacent square or a quarter rotation in the same square, and then pressing the button to activate your laser. The idea is to move the angled mirrors in such a way as to "illuminate" your opponent's pieces (leaving fewer pieces he can move around to his advantage) and eventually "illuminating" his pharaoh. When you activate your laser, it can reflect off your pieces as well as your opponent's pieces, so all pieces in the laser's path need to be considered on your turn. Some pieces have two mirrored sides (and can never be "illuminated"), some have only one mirrored side, and some have no mirrors. The strategy requires a lot of careful planning, as you must activate your laser at the end of every turn whether you are ready to or not! There is an unmoving laser for each player at opposite corners of the board. Several different starting positions are outlined in the rule booklet, depending on the level of skill the players have attained. An additional item that can be purchased to increase the excitement and difficulty is the Eye of Horus Beam Splitter which splits the original laser beam into two when hit; half the beam passing straight through the Eye of Horus and half being reflected at 90 degrees. Newly revised for 2011, the entire game is smaller and lighter-weight and lasers "fire" out of fixed sphinx pieces instead of the board's ledge. Zach
