Laser Battle

I just saw the commercial for this board game, and it looked really neat. Has anyone else played it?

Here's the BGG page on it:

I put this on layaway at WalMart along w/3 Heroscape Castles and some castle building card game that looked fun. I wanted to try it w/my son. *Sigh* it's still on layaway...

I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane.

django is a puppet of Ne-Gok-Sa
is that a laser pointer laser or remote control type stuff.if its a laser that would be cool to make it look like tree stump or something and use it for line of sight but its probably not because kids would be blinding themselves and i just realised that while i was typing this.

cbs42 is surprisingly tart
There's another laser game called Deflexion (though the company will soon be changing the name to Khet).

It's been around about a year -- enough to have gathered 282 ratings at BGG with an average score of 7.3. Not a bad score at all! It also won a "Mensa Select" Game Award, so you know it's got some solid game mechanics and strategy.

Anyway, I wanted to mention it because it's stood the test of time a bit longer than Laser Battle (which has only 1 vote at BGG) so you might want to compare the two and see which sounds better to you.

Here's a link to the game site, which includes a neat little video describing the rules: http://www.deflexion.biz/

It's got an Egyptian theme too, and I've always been a sucker for the Egyptian/sci-fi combo.

Here's a good article from someone at BGG comparing the two games point by point: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/120826
