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.

My class absolutely loved it! They have to really think and plan when they make a move in order to win the game. It promotes critical thinking and problem solving, which my math students always need! GREAT GAME!!!!!

This is a great game and gift idea!! My 3 year old and 8 year old love to play it! It's also a good before bedtime game because each game is quick. I bought it for a game to take to restaurants and on trips. It easily fits in my purse.

The concept of Gobblet Gobblers is great - get three in a row, with the ability to reposition your pieces throughout the game, and the ability to "gobble" (cover) your opponent's pieces with a larger piece. It is a nice step above tic-tac-toe in terms of teaching positional strategy to kids. Pieces and board are well-constructed. I've played with my 4 and 6 year old kids, and they can play each other without help. In terms of actual game play, especially for older kids or adults, it is important to note that the player who makes the first move will always win if they play error-free, unlike tic-tac-toe where players of equal skill will always tie if they both play error-free, irrespective of who makes the first move. Choosing the 4x4 Gobblet instead would help mitigate this issue.

This new twist on tic-tac-toe teachs young kids (3+) strategy while providing a lot of fun. The games go quick so this is an excellent toy to pull out if you have a few minutes.
