Kidzworld reviews Jishaku, a magnetic strategy board game.

Jishaku, which is the Japanese word for magnet, is a game of strategy and skill, kind of like chess. Designed for two or more players, you must place your magnets on the board without letting any magnets connect. If they touch on your turn, then you'll have to collect those magnets! The first person to run out of magnets wins the game - but as with most games, there's a twist. Magnets have north and south poles and a magnetic field, so they'll attract some and repel others. Since the goal of this game is to never let the magnets touch, you'll have to strategize your every move - and how you use magnetic force will determine the outcome of the game! Comes with 18 polished magnetic stones, a storage pouch and a foam game board.

Thumbs Up

  • A game of skill and strategy - you have to use your brain and think about your every move (your parents will encourage you to play all the time!).
  • Constant element of surprise - you'll never know when a bunch of magnets will attract and jump out of position, making you jump out of your chair!
  • Play it anywhere.
  • When you're not playing Jishaku, you can invent new games with the magnets.

Thumbs Down

  • You have to be careful where you store Jishaku because the magnets can demagnetize credit cards, computers, etc.
  • The magnets are a choking hazard for your younger sibs.

Strategy or Action?

  • I'm a huge action game fan.
  • Strategy games where you can use your brain rule.
  • I like a mix of action and strategy.
  • I don't care, as long as it stars Barbie.
