Jishaku : is a patent-pending, portable strategy game like chess or checkers that can be played anywhere – the kitchen or the beach.

Jishaku is a foam game board with divots for placing magnetized stones. Each player takes turns placing their stones, while trying to avoid them disrupting one another. You never know if your magnet will be facing which polar end of the magnet next to it. And that's where it gets really fun! When I originally saw the game Jishaku I thought it would be a great game for me and my husband to play. It is actually an easy and fun game to play with your children and friends.
