Giveaway: Gobblet Gobblers

Today I’m giving away another fun game from the folks at Blue-Orange.  This one is called Gobblet Gobblers.  It is a game for 2 people and is similar to tic-tac-toe.  In this version, though, you can place pieces on TOP of another person’s piece of a smaller size, which means it requires a bit more thinking skill than your average tic-tac-toe.  Although the box says it is for ages 5 and up, I think a 3 or 4 year old could play this too. This is a high quality all wood game, and the pieces are a pleasure to use.

If you’d like to win this game, comment below and tell me a game you enjoyed playing as a child.  I remember enjoying checkers and Uno, and I also liked Kings in the Corner.  How about you?   For an additional entry, share or like the link to this post on facebook or twitter using the buttons below this post, then come back and comment again to tell me where you shared it. I’ll be announcing a winner on Tuesday. Good luck!

(My review policy)


  1. I really liked “Connect Four” & “Snakes & Ladders”.
    Thanks for the chance

  2. I liked so many games, and it really depended on who I was playing WITH as to what game I liked playing. If playing with cards, War or SlapJack was fun, or Crazy 8 for a shorter game. For board games, I enjoyed Life. When we went to a particular friend’s house, we *always* played their Racko game since we didn’t have one and I liked it. If we didn’t have manufactured games and had to make our own, then my favorite was that game with a bunch of dots in a grid and each person draws a line and the one that forms the most square boxes wins. I forget what it is called, but it required thinking ahead for where someone else might go. Odd that I liked that game but never had the slightest interest in chess even though it has a similar concept.

    These Gobblers remind me of Larry the Cucumber. 🙂

  3. We played games a lot. Those were the days before computers, dvd’s, and CD’s. And I’m not THAT old. We loved Life when we were older. I remember my favorite was Don’t Spill the Beans. I love a game of chance with a little skill thrown in.

  4. As a young child, I loved my mama and baby animals memory game (which I still have for our kids to enjoy) and “Cooties”. As I grew, I enjoyed some of my parents’ games like Aggravation. Games are great 🙂

  5. Just “liked” this on Facebook!

  6. (Just testing to make sure my comments aren’t showing up yet because you need to review them first, rather than some other glitch – I didn’t pay attention when I submitted the first two times. Oops).

    • Sorry! If I understand it right, my web guru set up some kind of ‘cache’ that updates the website every 15 min instead of right away, so I think that makes comments slow to show up…

  7. I always loved checkers and am enjoying teaching our kids too.

  8. We played games all. the. time. with my Grandmama who lived next door. She liked to play Parcheesi, Rummikub, Scrabble, and Gin Rummy. Sooo patient to play strategy games with a bunch of little kids!!

  35. chinese checkers!

  36. My family didn’t play a lot of games when I was younger that I can recall, but when we went on vacation to the beach or lake, we would always play card games. I can’t even recall the name of the one we always really loved where you would totally bluff on how many cards you put down, but if someone challenged it and you had bluffed, you had to pick up the entire pile. I wasn’t a terribly good liar so I’d lose quite a bit. My brothers and I also played a lot of monopoly at the beach house.

  37. I loved Trouble and Headache. I think they were made by the same company.

  38. I loved playing Crazy 8’s with my grandpa.

  39. Loved Mousetrap!

  42. WE always played card game hearts… Still one of my favorites

  43. Every time I see my nephew he makes me play Connect 4.

  45. I remember playing Chinese Checkers with my mom. Go Fish was another card game that was a favorite.
