How to Play:
Fish Stix is a visual strategy game. To start, players place 1 fish stick in the center of a table where all players can reach it. Give each player 3 sticks, 1 scoreboard, and 6 fish tokens. Players take turns matching fish by color and direction. For every fish matched, a player moves her fish token that number of spaces on her scoreboard. The first player to move all tokens to 10 wins! Be careful – the direction each fish is swimming can be confusing.
Why we love this item:
This game can be played by adults and younger children too. There’s no reading involved so it’s a great game for kids who don’t yet read. We’ve watched a 14-year-old get clobbered by an 8-year old and we’ve played with families where preschoolers team up with parents. This game was developed by the creator of the multiple award-winning game Qwirkle ™ - if you love Qwirkle ™, you’ll love Fish Stix!
