    Do the lasers really look like they do in the pictures?

    No. They are invisible, resulting in only a red dot where they land - like a laser pointer.

    That's a shame, maybe they should bundle in a tiny smoke machine.

    Should this not be "it shone off the board"? Or, "it was shined off the board"?

    I bought this after popping into my games shop and seeing it had "lasers" written on it. I'd only had one drink.

    It's fun. I tried using a jostick to put some smoke over the board so the lasers would show up. It sorta worked by I did also get a face full on incense!

    The lack of lasers could perhaps be solved by adding a cylindrical lens to the lasers. The proper lens will turn it into something like the laser guided saws and levels where a single laser beams is bent at varying angles so that it becomes effectively a flat plane. At this point. the beam will reflect off the pieces just the same but it will also be visible on the floor of the board.
