Jishaku (jee-shah-koo) Japanese for magnet, is a portable strategy game like chess or checkers that can be played anywhere, each game comes with 18 polished magnetic stones, a storage pouch and a novel foam insert. We received Jishaku a few weeks ago and from day one it was a hit in our house. My boys (13&9) play the game together at least 3-4 times a week. When I sit down and play with them I still jump and let out a little scream when the magnetic stones "jump". You can play 3 diffrent games I'm out, Elimantion & Round Up. I'm out is the favorite in our house and is very simple to play :

" I'm Out "
Start with 9 magnets each (or 6, for 3 players). If you find 9 magnets too challenging,
start with 8 magnets each.
Take turns placing 1 magnet at a time into any empty space in the base. If 1 or more
stones attach to your stone or to any others on the board, remove your stone and any
magnets that connected. Now you must get rid of all those extra stones, too!
Be the first player to declare “I’m out” by getting rid of all your stones.

Jishaku would make the perfect game for game night or anytime you have people over ! My family highly recommends it !

You can buy Jishaku on
www.playjishaku.com online store or use the store locator to find a retailer near you.

* This game is for ages 8 & Up !

Jishaku is a Playdate Pick !
