Leevalley sells magnetic playing cards

http://www.leevalley.com/garden/page.aspx?c=1&p=52316&cat=2,...

They also sell magnetic toys for kids and have a decent selection of rare earth magnets.

I'm not affiliated with the store but I shop there a lot. They sell quality woodworking and gardening tools and have a 3 month unconditional return policy.

They also sell Crokinole boards!

Not terribly innovative or anything, but there is a manufacturer of magnetic versions of classic (and not so classic) games designed to be stuck on your refrigerator:

There is a turn marker for each such that a player can take a turn and just leave it for the other player when they get to it.

Time to break out my very first Geeklist, Magnets!

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi...

However, most of the games on the list are out of print. Personally, I'd go with Polarity.

Polarity is pretty sweet. I'll throw in my recommendation for that one, too.

There was a game called Touche that my brother and I played years ago. Each player had a set of clear pawns with magnetic chips inside them. Magnetic bars under the board's surface would cause the chips to flip from one color to the other unexpectedly. You moved your pieces around the board stepwise. The goal was to get four of your color in a row. The magnetic bars could be reconfigured to change the behavior of the chips from game to game.

Link to the original game below. Someone is now selling this under a different name; I saw it in one of the milliondy catalogs we've gotten in the mail recently. I,ll come back and post if I can find it.

there's a game using the newer, strongish magnets called "kineti-go". It is only $80 on ebay and looks fun.
