Jishaku is a portable strategy game like chess or checkers that can be played anywhere in the kitchen or in the beach. Unlike chess, there is an element of surprise when the magnets jump out of position, without warning. The unpredictability of Jishaku turns any get-together into a party!
- In the game of magnetic action, Jishaku combines both strategy and magnetic force. Jishaku, Japanese for magnet, uses finely polished hematite magnets for playing pieces.
- Place magnets onto the base without letting any magnets connect. If any magnets connect on your turn, you must collect those magnets and add them to your pile. Run out of magnets first to win.
- All magnets have North and South poles. Jishaku magnets do too. They just aren't marked. So as you carefully place your magnet you can feel the tug of magnets all around the board.
- The record for the most connecting magnets on a turn is twelve and in "I'm out". That’s not a good thing. Can strategy really overpower magnetic force?
- Skilled players learn to use magnetic force in their favor repelling the magnets closest to them without forcing them into other magnets.
- Contents: Jishaku includes 18 polished magnetic stones, a soft drawstring bag (for stones), a 9” x 6” durable game board with a foam center, and easy-to-follow instructions.
- Playtime 15 minutes+. Good for ages 14 and up.
