Congratulations!

If I had to describe Jishaku in only one word, it would be “hilarious”!

From the site: “Jishaku, Japanese for magnet, uses finely polished hematite magnets for playing pieces. There are several variations of the game but the most popular is “I’m Out”. While alternating turns with your opponent(s), the goal of the game is to place magnets onto the game base – without letting any magnets connect.

From the moment we opened the box, we were hooked! I was blogging when the package arrived and decided to humor Girlie Girl by playing it “just once” with her. An hour later, we were still playing and laughing like crazy! Now, you know that anything that can get me away from the computer for that long must be pretty amazing!

Basically, you take turns placing these smooth shiny magnets on to a foam board and hope it doesn’t attract the other magnets already there. When it does, it’s such a surprise that it kind of makes you jump. It’s such an easy game to play and goes by pretty quickly that you end up playing over and over. It’s one of the most fun games I’ve played in a long time!

    My boys would be speed deamons who believe moving quickly they can get in and get out before magnets connect- thereby fooling the other magnets by surprise insertion.

    This game/puzzle looks like so much fun! Speed Demon: A player using this method thinks that by moving quickly they can get in and get out before magnets connect- thereby fooling the other magnets by surprise insertion. I was thinking of buying this for my kids to play with while on vacation. Sounds like you had fun with it, so I think I will :)
