If your kids are looking for toys that provide them with unique challenges, a chessboard will offer more challenges that they can cope up with. But there are kids who can find chess too complex for their comfort. They might be looking for something similar but with easier objectives but with engaging play. One possible option available will be the Khet 2.0 Laser Game.
The Khet 2.0 Laser Game is similar to chess but with a modern twist. Players of the game use lasers to take out the king or pharaoh of the opponent. This Egyptian-themed game comes with 26 pieces, including two that fire lasers, a game board and illustrated instructions on how to play the game. The ultimate point of the game is to bring down the other pharaoh by firing a laser and using the other pieces to direct the laser to the opponent pharaoh to eliminate it. Players need to set up the pieces in such a way that allows the laser to reflect into each mirrored piece to try and eliminate the opponent king. When a laser hits a piece with a non-reflected surface, it is removed from the board.
Kids will consider the Khet 2.0 Laser Game quite challenging and yet fun to play with. The easy and yet challenging objective will keep them engaged with playing the game with likeminded friends. Its portable design makes it a good travel toy. It is ideal for kids from 9 years old and above. The Khet 2.0 Laser Game is available at Think Geek for $21.
