The game of magnetic action.
Master the art of magnetic attraction with Jishaku, the strategic boardgame.

Jishaku: the game of magnetic action
Jishaku is a simple, yet addictive magnetic boardgame for one or more players. Essentially, your goal is to place all of your magnetic stones onto the game board without any of them touching each other.
Sounds simple, right? Not so fast. The magnetic stones are extremely strong and can easily fly across the board when attracted to each other.
Jishaku is mega-tough
As you hold your stone above the Jishaku board, you may feel the magnetic attraction of other pieces. Some may begin to twist and turn in place.
Use these clues to determine how to orient your stone and prevent two or more magnets from "jumping" together. It's incredibly easy for a domino effect to occur where suddenly four or five magnets end up stuck together.
Whenever you are unable to place a stone safely, you must remove the clump of magnets and add them back to your pile of stones. Whoever places all of their stones safely on the Jishaku board first wins.
A game of strategy, crazy magnetic action
Jishaku is like chess, but without the strange piece movements, timers, and creepy Russian nerds. OK, it's not much like chess at all. Still, Jishaku requires a lot of strategy and skill.
As you "feel" where you'd like to place a piece, it's quite common for other stones to quickly spin or shift as they respond to the attraction or repulsion of your magnet. This can cause a rapid cascade of magnetic action on other areas of the board. Before you know it, five stones have snapped together. Jishaku is a simple, exciting, and often frustrating game.
What's in the box
Jishaku includes a draw-string storage bag, 9" x 6" game board, and 18 magnetic stones.
