Khet, an innovative board game that uses two class II laser diodes, is an exciting chess-like classic strategy game that has already sold over 60 thousand units. In the game players alternate turns moving their Egyptian themed pieces around the playing field after which they fire their low powered laser diode with the goal of illuminating their opponent's pieces to eliminate them from the game. Innovention Toys, the company behind Khet, has already won several awards for the game including the 'Mensa Select' stamp of approval and a 'Top Pick' award from Today's Parent magazine. Khet, which retails for $44.95, is one of the five finalists for the Toy Industry's '2007 Game of the Year.'
Innovention Toys has already released one expansion, the Eye of Horus Beam Splitter (MSRP $11.95), which includes two Eye of Horus Beamsplitter pieces, each of which can split a player's laser beam in two directins greatly increasing the strategic possibilities of the game. One more expansion is planned and should be available for the 2007 holiday season.
