Daddy, when is it my turn?

This year, Sagada got the coolest Christmas gift ever. It's like chess, but WITH LASERS!! Each player has a laser that they fire after every turn and the pieces are mirrors that get moved around on a board. The object is to position your pieces so that the laser beam gets deflected into the opponent's "Pharaoh".

Here's a pic showing the silver Pharaoh getting hit (look for the red dot). The laser starts from the green spot where my finger is (see, Sagada lets me play too) and goes through 8 reflections. I'll let you have the fun of tracing out the laser path!



My God, why didn't they have this when I was 6?!?!

Hey Joe, my boys got me the same game for Christmas and we played it for a while. Very cool. Hope you and the family had a good Christmas.
