Laser Track is a board game for two players, played in turns. No randomisation is involved. You rely on your spatial thinking and attentiveness.
Your goal is to build a mirror maze and walk your laser beam through it to hit the targets. Though it seems easy in the first look you will soon realise the game reminds Chess in a way. To succeed you’d have to predicts the other player strategy and also play a double game to hide your plans.

The game is played in turns. So use a technique of your choice to define who goes first.
The goal is to follow your beam through the any 3 out of 5 gates before the other player.
Put the first gate anywhere in the first 2x2 quadrant in the center, second within the 4x4 and so on. Gates should be placed in the way that any two of them do not take the same line.
After all 5 gates set, place the laser so they also do not hit any target just yet.
