Identity Games makes immensely creative games that our family enjoys tremendously. They are unlike so many other games, because they truly take cognitive skills and creativity to succeed. We had the opportunity to try out Jisaku made by Identity Games. This game is excellent! My only warning to this game is that the main pieces to this game are very strong magnets. So, if you have a baby or a tot in the house (like we do) please do not play while they are around. Be sure to keep these and all magnets out of reach of little hands!  

     The word Jishaku is Japanese for magnet, hence the name. The hematite pieces are moved along a foam field in this strategy game. There are actually three different ways that you can play. It is a two player game and a session takes approximately 20 minutes. Our family found that one game typically wasn't enough. We usually played three or four in one sitting. Although the game is meant for ages 14 and up, our 10 year old played with assistance. It is a wonderful family game and with winter coming up, this is a great way to keep kids thinking indoors on the cold nights!
