We love playing games at our house, but most of the ones that we have are for the older kids. It was nice to receive a game that all of us can play! Even though this game is for ages 5 and up, my 4 year old had a great time playing it with me today. Gobblet Gobblers is very similar to a game we all know, Tic-Tac-Toe. The difference is that you can place your larger Gobblet Gobbler on top of a smaller one of your opponents and take over that spot. With each turn, the game can quickly change as your pieces are “gobbled”. You also have the option to move one of your pieces to a different spot on the board. A winner is proclaimed with 3 of the same color Gobblers in a row.
The game includes the playing grid, 12 Gobblers, and colorful instructions.
I love how this game incorporates critical thinking and strategy planning. Each game only lasts a few minutes, making it perfect for the younger crowd. Two thumbs up from us!
Gobblet Gobblers is included in the kindergarten curriculum kit from Timberdoodle. Timberdoodle puts a lot of thought into their curriculum kits and pulls the very best from different curriculum brands for each grade.
