As a break from figure gaming, our last Wednesday game was Khet http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/16991/khet-the-laser-game . This was one of Derek's regular charity shop finds: this time from Stirling, on the way back from Carronade.
This was a great little chess like game. The added complication of having two lasers firing at mirrored pieces added a brain-hurty level of complexity. We managed to have six games: everybody played everybody over the first two set ups. At least three games were decided by the active player miscaculating and hitting their own Pharoh (I did it twice!).
A great fun evening with a game that cost less than £5!
