review by Roads to Everywhere
”What usually happens in tic-tac-toe, especially if the players have similar skill levels, is that “the cat gets it.” How many games of tic-tac-toe can you play without getting tired of the stupid cat getting it every single time? That doesn’t happen with Gobblet Gobblers.”Read the Review

review by One Luckey Wife
”This game is really fun. When you place a piece you need to think about if your opponent can gobble your piece and win or if you can gobble theirs and win.”Read the Review
I really like this game, but I can't get my 6 year old son into it. He doesn't understand the strategy of it yet. I may put it away for awhile and pull it back out when he's a bit older. I'm glad Timberdoodle offers it!
Got it for our 4 year old, but my husband and I honestly enjoy playing it with him!
If I were to suggest any improvement, it would only be to the packaging. The box is far bigger than it needs to be. Would be much more convenient if it were smaller.
Would you find me ridiculous if I told you my husband and I kept playing after the kids go to bed? This is truly a fun family game. I only wish my kids would hurry up and learn more strategy to be better worthy opponents. HAHA! Truly is one we play over and over.
We love playing this as a family. Tic-tac-toe with a twist. My son loves it!
This game takes Tic Tac Toe to a whole new level! I'll be the first to admit I lose a whole lot more often than I should. My kids eat it up though. We ALL love this game!
