Richmond, BC – (June 1, 2015) – Griddly Games has given a modern day make-over to a game that originates from Ancient Asia over 4,000 years ago. The new 5 Stones game is now available from Griddly Games.FINAL_5 STONES Box Front with STONES

Before there was the game of Jacks, there was 5 Stones (MSRP $8.95 for one or more players ages 6 and up), a fun personal challenge or a friendly competition with others. Playing 5 Stones is a perfect practice of hand-eye coordination and dexterity when players progress through stages of quick reflexes, accuracy, and maybe, a little luck.

Reisa Schwartzman, president and founder of Griddly Games, said, “5 Stones was one of my favorite games as a child, and by adding a cool, contemporary update to the components, Griddly Games is re-introducing the game to the world.”

5 Stones is a solid addition to Griddly’s product catalog as a classic game that older generations remember, want to introduce to their children and grandchildren, and everyone can play together. 5 Stones joins Griddly Games’ rapidly expanding catalog of award-winning family games that already includes Rainbows and Storms, Show Me the Kwan,  Wise Alec™ orginial, Wise Alec™ Junior, Wise Alec™ Expansion Packs (Body Works, Bright Ideas, Civilize This, Nature Nuts, and Sports Buffs), Oversight, Words of the Wise, Chronicles of the Mind, and the company’s Griddly Headz™ sports-themed strategy games that include the top-selling Griddly Headz NASCAR® Racing Game, Griddly Headz Baseball and Griddly Headz Hockey.
