The Village Games Arc is the fourth arc of Dr. Stone and the second arc of the Ishigami Village Saga.

Prevented from entering the village and needing alcohol to complete the Sulfa drug, Senku and the rest of the Kingdom of Science hatch a plan to win the Grand Bout. With both Ruri's life and the future of science and humanity at stake, they can't afford to lose!


This arc showcases the participation of the Kingdom of Science in the Grand Bout of Ishigami Village, held each generation, the winner of which becomes the new Village Chief and marries the priestess.

Given that the likely winner of the Grand Bout, Magma, would have been an obstacle to the intentions of the Kingdom of Science, the original plan was to cheat the game in any available way so that one of the men of the Kingdom would win instead. Kinro was the most likely candidate to succeed.[1]

The Kingdom's participants in the games were Kohaku, Kinro, Ginro, Chrome and Senku; with a couple matches seeing support from Suika and Gen.

Over the course of the games, many of the Kingdom's schemes failed to work, but thanks to the resourcefulness of the participants, victory was achieved, and Senku took the winning spot, much to the surprise of everyone.[2][3][4][5][6]

Senku thus married Ruri, but divorced her a couple minutes later as to not waste time with the request from the villagers that he celebrate with them.[7]

As the final result, the Kindgom of Science effectively interrupted the event, preventing Magma from taking the seat of the chief, and Ruri remaining single. The Kingdom also acquired the large amounts of alcohol and vinegar that were needed for the synthesis of the sulfa drug.
