What if both pharoahs are killed by the same laser fire? Who wins?

a) If one laser took a longer path, presumably the other pharoah died first? If same distance, apply some other rule?

b) The shooter wins, for killing the other pharoah?

c) The shooter loses, for killing his own pharoah?

d) Is it a draw?

e) Whoever has more pieces?

f) Remove both "Eyes of Horus" and pretend the shot never happened?

Has this situation ever been ruled on/decided?

I would do all the things I have ever dreamed of doing. I would love to become a professional whistler.I'm pretty amazing at it now, but I wanna get, like, even better. Make my living out of it.

This happened to me a few weeks back. My opponent killed both our pharaohs. We naturally assumed it was a draw.

Yes, this needs an official ruling.

Personally, I'd like to see it ruled as a loss for the shooter ... unlike a stalemate in chess ... on the other hand, I haven't given it much thought.

Not sure I understand the issue. . .are you talking about the game with The Eye of Horus beam splitter included? That makes it a decent question, since the beam heads off in two directions. With the basic game, the single beam will only stop at a solid object once, right?

Yes, right. This is a beam splitter problem only.
