Description from the packaging.
After thousands of years, the stones have returned to the world.
Play a power game to amass points and compete against the clock.
Play for elegance, meditating over each move with the deliberation of a master.
See if you can empty the pouch and discover the secret of 4-ways.
Let the oracle reward you with insights and answers to your innermost questions.
The Chinese call it Shih, the ancient Celts called it Runa futhark, the Mayan Indians called it Kami-a-hota, and the Japanese called it Ishido. Yet, regardless of origin, when translated the names all mean one thing, The Way of the Stones. From the first move, this ancient game and beautiful puzzle recalls the depth of chess and the simplicity of Go. Ishido will call upon your deepest powers of strategy and concentration as you match 72 stones on a board of 96 squares. As you merge with the game's many possibilities, you will have a chance to discover the heart of Ishido, and why, to some, The Way of the Stones is more than just a game.
