Description Edit | History

Laser Battle includes a modular hi-precision plastic board which allows for a variety of game-start layouts as well as unlimited expansion using additional play-set boards.
Use the real laser module and hi-precision mirrors to attack your opponent’s Tower and “blow it up”.

Similar to Deflexion/Khet, players are attempting to set up a series of mirrors to bounce a laser into the opponent's tower. Here are the differences from Khet:

  • In Khet, the laser is always moving orthogonally. In Laser Battle, the laser must be bounced at the proper angle off pieces which can be rotated to 16 different angles (22½° increments: 0°, 22½°, 45°, and so forth), which reflects the laser orthogonally and/or diagonally, at the players' discretion (or error!).
  • In Khet, the laser is fired from the walls of the game board. In Laser Battle, the laser is being fired by a unit, which you may rotate for very surprising victory.
  • In Khet, each player must fire the laser after her move. In Laser Battle, firing the laser is optional, allowing both sloppier play and stealthier play.
  • Khet has a fixed game board (and a moveable / roteable mirrored second-floor with the Khet 3D: Tower of Kadesh expansion). The board in Laser Battle is modular (single-floor), allowing for numerous configurations.
  • A Laser Battle set comes with extra headdresses for the pieces so you can buy a second identical set, and play with up to four players. Also, it is available in two color schemes, which could allow for an eight-player laser frenzy!
  • There are only three types of pieces in Laser Battle. Khet has four types in the basic game, and a fifth (Khet: Eye of Horus Beam Splitter) in an expansion.

The Tower has 6 light sensors – and when hit by the laser it flashes red lights and makes an explosion sound, which signals the end of a game.

This game was the subject of a lawsuit in which the designer of Khet: The Laser Game brought suit against MGA Entertainment and the court found Laser Battle as infringing.
