I saw this game recommended in a parenting magazine and ordered it as a birthday gift for my four-year-old. Although the age recommendation is five-and-up, any child who has a basic understanding of tic-tac-toe should be able to play and enjoy. I should note that it is far more fun than tic-tac-toe.

I won't go into the rules, but basically it's a game of strategy, but it also hits on spacial reasoning, ascending and descending order, and cause-and-effect -- but mostly it just feels like fun. Your children don't realize their brains are working to figure out where to move next or which guy to move.

My son also loves the fun shapes of the smooth, brightly colored game pieces with the plume of felt "hair" and assembling the game grid. The game feels very sturdy and almost craftsman-like, rather than the usual molded plastic.

One of the best things about this game is that it is very fast. It's easy to say "yes" to three quick games of Gobblet Gobblers before bed, because you could play this many games in about five-to-ten minutes.

Another great thing is that it is simply fun. After playing against the children several times, my husband and I could not resist playing each other, because he has a theory that you could never lose if you went first. Nice theory, but he was wrong! Enjoy!

Do not be misled by cuteness or the obvious similarity to tic tac toe, Gobblet Gobblers is an abstract game worthy of serious strategic contemplation.

No, it's not chess. It's not even checkers. But it's not like any tic tac toe game you've ever played, unless you've already played the Major FUN Award-winning Gobblet Jr.

Repackaged and revisioned, Gobblet Gobblers plays the same as Gobblet Jr., but introduces a new level of whimsy and fantasy that invites children to view the often serious challenge of abstract reasoning with a light and playful heart.

Players build the board out of four, brightly colored wood pieces. Using these pieces, instead of a solid board, gives the game a friendlier feeling - integrating the game a bit more with its environment (kitchen table, play table, carpet, floor). The pieces all have little felt feather-like things sticking out of their "heads," adding to the whimsy and offering a practical and compelling way to lift and move the pieces from place to place. There are two different color pieces - blue and orange (oddly, but probably not coincidentally reprising the name of the publisher). Both players get six pieces - two sets of three nesting cylinders.

The game plays like tic tac toe (the object being to get three of your color pieces in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row), but, unlike the traditional game, in Gobblet Gobblers you can move your pieces once they are placed, and, if your piece is larger than another, you can temporarily "gobble" it by placing your piece on top. Being able to move pieces is departure enough to make Gobblet Gobblers something more than your paper-and-pencil version of tic tac toe.

We love absolutely everything about this toy, there's nothing not to like! The pieces and frames are made from top quality wood and I'm sure it will last a long time. The game throws in an interesting twist to the old knots and crosses game. Requires a lot more strategy and thought in the game. The wooden frame pieces fit in well in each other. the only one recommendation I would have is to provide a board on which the game can be assembled, this would make it a lot more stable while still keeping the portability factor intact. In the current design, teh frame pieces can move around rather easily.

Format: Toy Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I chose this game for my 8 year old son. He is familiar with tic-tac-toe (as are most 8 year olds), so I thought this would be a fun modification of a game he already knows.

Pros:
1. Standard tic-tac-toe is kind of a brainless game. There is a pattern to it and once the pattern is learned, it is no fun. This game builds on that, but adds strategy. It is a thinking game. You aren’t just thinking about your current move. You need to think about how your current move will impact future moves.
2. It is a great game to build memory skills since one of the keys to it is remembering which smaller pieces are covered up and where.
3. My son struggles with focus and this game held his attention and forced him to focus on what we were doing.
4. So many kid games are mind numbing for adults. This one was actually enjoyable for an adult too.
5. It is creative and the colors/faces are engaging.
6. This is one of those games that you don’t have to let the kid win. My son was able to win on his own even when I was trying hard to win too.

I have yet to find any cons of this game. It is a really fun game and will definitely be one of our favorites.

Format: Toy Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It takes less than a minute to learn the rules, and a bright 4 year old can play (the recommended age by Amazon is 5 months and up, which is delusional and also unsafe as the smaller pieces are definite choking hazards). The manufacturer says 5 and up, this is much more reasonable. Adults will find this an excellent game, especially to play with kids. If the thought of another game of Candyland leads you despair, this is a very good alternate choice.

Despite taking only a minute, the strategy is actually fairly complex. Surprisingly so. You need memory (which is where I usually choke), logic and planning skills.

Games take generally less than 15 min to play. The pieces are sturdy plastic and cute, but smaller than I expected. I included a photo with a soda can for scale.

The storage box is not as great, it takes up much more space than needed and prying the pieces out of the thin plastic mold each time is annoying. The box itself is nowhere as sturdy as the game, having one of those thin plastic windows that easily tear. A smaller (nest the pieces) and sturdier box would have been a better choice.
