Session Report for Deflexion
played on Thursday, November 24, 2005
Having already played two games using the Classic setup, my father and I decided to try a game using the Imhotep setup described in Deflexion's instructions.
My father played Gold so he went first. I was Silver and so went second.
Right away I noticed that if I rotated one of my Pyramids one quarter-turn clockwise (the closest one to me that is on the next-to-the-left-most column) I would create a tricky situation for my father: namely, a shot from his laser would strike his own Pharaoh (unless something was done to redirect the beam of the laser).
In this way I kept my father on the defensive for much of the game. He still managed to remove many of my pieces, however.
Towards the end of the game, I noticed that I could remove one of his Pyramids all the way across the board from my laser. I hoped this wasn't a trap for me to fall into, so I did just that. I eliminated his Pyramid but, unfortunately for me, that was a piece that my Dad was planning on removing from the path of his laser, and I saved him a move by doing it for him. As a result, it only took him only one more move to direct his laser right into my Pharaoh, claiming him the victory.
