Jishaku - Japanese Game Review and Giveaway

http://www.playjishaku.com/App_Themes/jishaku/Images/logo.jpg


My Family Review:
Jishaku is a powerful magnet game with lot of scream, fun and laugh with your family or friends. It's easy to play but dont think the way like me. Jishaku is a Japanese word for magnet. Jishaku uses finely polished hematite magnets for playing pieces.. It's a unique game with its magnetic attraction. The game includes 18 magnetic stones and storage bag, force field game base and instructions. The magnetic stones are so strong and powerful. You can feel the power when you carefully place the magnet in the hole of foam base. All these magnets have North and South poles. You can't expect when your magnet will react with the other magnets. If your piece attaches to other magnets, you have to take them all. The goal of the game is to place magnets onto the game base - without letting any magnets connect. The first player to run out of pieces is the winner. You will have more fun to play this game but you dont mind losing and love to play it again and again. There are several variations of the game but the most popular is "I'm Out".

Doctor of Chiropractic Services / Homeopathic Treatment Specialist recommends this game as our blood system has iron within the blood. When the blood is exposed to a magnetic field of the proper type, the exposure stimulates the blood system and encourages a greater level of healing. Hematite is an iron oxide, metallic, opaque stone which is generally found in iron-mining areas.

Jishaku™ is a patent-pending, strategy game like chess or checkers except that it has an additional feature that takes it one step further, and it can be played virtually anywhere. Now that may not push your WOW! button yet, but unlike chess, there is an element of surprise when the magnets of the game jump out of position, without warning! You can rest assured of one thing for sure with Jishaku™. First comes the element of surprise, and then plenty of laughs are to follow as two or more players try to beat force fields with strategic thinking and with careful and precise handling of the game’s magnetic stones. The hilarious unpredictability of the game adds an entirely new dimension to play. The amazing aspect of the game is it's ability to bring families and generations together, revitalizing family game nights once again!

A Breakdown Of The Featured Category Scores

You can read overall ratings about this game . Each individual rating that was assigned to this product, is based upon a combination of their evaluation guidelines and consumer hands-on evaluation feedback. The information below provides a brief explanation as to how that specific rating score was reached. The individual category ratings for this product are listed below.
http://www.playjishaku.com/App_themes/Jishaku/images/img_game.jpg

CRITICAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT: Rating Level 5 - When it comes to critical skills development, Jishaku proved itself more than qualified to receive recognition. The more kids and adults are playing the game, the greater the level of stimulation to their critical/cognitive skills and thinking processes.

Strategic thinking is synonymous with this game. Although critical skill development is already well established for the age group for which this game was designed, there is always a need for further stimulation and improvement. Jishaku is instrumental in helping players develop a far greater level of speed in analytical processes, stimulating motor & cognitive skills, improving thought process, and tactile touch recognition. Jishaku provides a substantial contribution to critical/cognitive skill development in children and helping adults knock the dust off their brain cells.

EDUCATIONAL VALUE: Rating Level 3 - The educational value for Jishaku was an average score of "3" in this category. Although Jishaku excels in most other evaluation category scores, when it comes to the educational value, it was difficult to determine any substantial contribution by this game to the educational realm for a child or adults. The scoring for the educational value was reached primarily from the contribution to strategic skill development and thought processes. Jishaku pulled an average score of "3" in this category.

FUNFACTOR™: Rating Level 5 - FunFactor™ was as simple as can be in determining with Jishaku. Every participant who played Jishaku, demonstrated that the level of FunFactor™ in this game was of the highest level in regard to FunFactor™. Combining the facts of every single participant demonstrating a very strong response level to the challenge of the game, our videotape evaluation, and the feedback in our product evaluation feedback forms, it was easy to establish that Jishaku scored the highest possible in this category. Jishaku pulled a perfect score in this category.

INNOVATION: Rating Level 5 - Jishaku was by far one of the most innovative ideas in game design we have seen to date. Using Hematite stones with their magnetic properties delivers a challenging game of strategy which delivers game play which is virtually never repeated. The combination of the game rules, game pieces, and overall concept of the game, truly defines what the word "innovation" is all about.

MARKETING VALUE: Rating Level 5 - The marketing value of Jishaku couldn't possibly have been any higher. It is a simple game that is popular, well designed, and has an excellent price point. The level of popularity was all too apparent from our video tapes, feedback forms, and our own visual impression. What you have here is a game which will be an easy sell; a most unique and innovative concept in game design which delivers a refreshing concept of game play which encourages repetitive play. Being so unique and capturing the attention of the players so overwhelmingly, Jishaku pulls a perfect score in this category.

VISUAL APPEAL: Rating Level 5 - When it comes to visual appeal, Jishaku pulled a perfect score in this category. From the striking colors of the game box to the colorful magnetic Hematite stones used as playing pieces, Jishaku pulled a perfect score in this category.

Watch this video and you'll know how to play and have more fun with your kids and friends. You can take this game and play anywhere you like. Great gift for kids or friends for Christmas.
