Product Description:

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 king, is safe, while endeavoring to adjust the mirrors to his advantage for his own attack. 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 strike his king. 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. 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! The lasers for each player are located at opposite corners of the board. Game includes: 26 playing pieces, two laser pieces, game board and instructions. Batteries are included. ~ Zach

My 13 year old nephew plays chess and plays a lot of video games, so this seemed like a great combination of the two!

Because our grandson likes to play chess, but also likes video games so I thought this was the best of both worlds

I gave this as a Birthday gift to a 10-year-old and he was immediately engaged. I am purchasing again as a Thank You for a Dad to play with his 9-year-old son.
