Deflexion, the game that combines lasers with classic strategy is now available in Canada from Stortz & Associates Inc.
Deflexion, the game that combines lasers with classic chess-style strategy on a board for an experience enjoyed by players ages 9-99. Players alternate turns moving Egyptian-themed mirrored pieces around the board. Upon finishing their move the player fires their (low powered) laser with the goal of illuminating one of their opponent's pieces. If hit, the piece is eliminated from the board. Play continues until finally the laser hits one of the Pharoah pieces!
Linda Stortz, V.P. of Stortz & Associates Inc stated "This is an innovative game from a fresh new American company. Lasers, mirrors and strategy combine in a high tech game using classic tactics."
When the laser is fired mirrored surfaces reflect the laser until the beam hits the wall of the game board or a game piece. Play continues until you or your opponent’s Pharaoh is hit/illuminated.
