Fish Stix Board Game

A visual strategy game that’s fun for kids of different ages to play together.


Why we love this game:
Though the game says Ages 6-12, this game can be played by adults and younger children too. 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 game designer of Qwirkle ™ - if you love Qwirkle ™, you’ll love Fish Stix!


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 3 sticks, 1 scoreboard, and 6 fish tokens to each player. Players take turns matching fish by color and direction. For every fish matched, a player moves her fish tokens that number of spaces on her scoreboard. The first player to move all tokens to 10 wins

What a fun game to help strengthen your child’s cognitive skills. On another review someone compared this game to dominoes & I completely agree. Fish Stixs makes "thinking" fun with the use of a colorful board & fish tokens. Plus, the game didn't seem to last too long but the perfect length for a 7 year old before their minds start to wonder off.


One lucky person will win this educational but fun game!
