Easy to learn and irresistibly fun, Gobblet Gobblers is the perfect first strategy game for kids. Like Tic-Tac-Toe, you have to line up three of your Gobblers in a row to win. The adorable little Gobblers are hungry for fun…and other Gobblers! Put on your thinking cap to outmaneuver your opponent and win the game. Includes 12 Gobblers and a wooden grid.
Your goal in Gobblet Gobblers is to place three of your pieces in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row. Your pieces can stack on top of each other and they start the game nested, off the board. On a turn, you either play one exposed piece from your three off-the-board piles or move one piece on the board to any other spot on the board where it fits. A larger piece can cover any smaller piece.
Your memory is tested as you try to remember which color one of your larger pieces is covering before you move it. As soon as a player has three like-colored pieces in a row, he wins — except in one case: If you lift your piece and reveal an opponent's piece that finishes a three-in-a-row, you don't immediately lose; you can't return the piece to its starting location, but if you can place it over one of the opponent's two other pieces in that row, the game continues.
This is a fabulous game for all ages. It's also great for travel - just take the pieces out of the box and pop them into a pencil case and you've got a small, light-weight game that you can play just about anywhere.
