ThinkFun has acquired the rights to Khet: The Laser Game and is planning to relaunch it in November as Laser Chess (retail price $40). Though the Egyptian theme will be replaced by standard Chess pieces, ThinkFun says gameplay will be unchanged.

Khet was previously published by Innovation Toys, which had won a patent infringement lawsuit against MGA Entertainment for its game Laser Battle. ThinkFun also sells a laser-based challenge puzzle, Laser Maze.
