Gobblet plays like Tic-Tac-Toe but with strategy and memory mixed in. Players place four pieces in a row to win, "gobbling" their opponent's pieces. With irresistible, fast-moving play and astonishingly simple rules, Gobblet is a great strategy game for the whole family. This all wooden board game takes just seconds to learn but a lifetime to master. Elegantly designed and sustainably made, Gobblet self-stores all the playing pieces and looks attractive on display.
