Who would love this: Tic-Tac-Toe fans who love some modified challenges  

Gobblet Gobblers by Blue Orange - how I wish my childhood Tic-Tac-Toe could have played in this way! Don’t be fool by these cute-looking gobblers; they “swallow” each other up, and “spew” the other out in no time surprisingly, ultimately deciding the fate of the outcome of the unexpected game! 

This is a classic game re-modification, except in a better and cleverer way! You need to line up your three funny-looking Gobblers in a row to win, but here’s the twist: you get to gobble up the other player’s smaller Gobbler, and you also get to change your mind and move your Gobbler to another spot. The outcome is one messy, unpredictable, hungry-eating “Gobbly”-fun! 

Why I love ❤️ this game: 

(1) Modified Tic-Tac-Toe in a Smart Way: it is tricky to reinvent a nostalgic game like Tic-Tac-Toe, you don’t want to overcomplicate it, and you don’t want to lose the essence of it. This game has done it just right: simple enough for kids to understand, and smart enough for adults to do some tactical manoeuvre. 

(2) Cute Gobblers: the design of the Gobblers themselves, just look at how irresistibly cute they are!! 

Enjoy the video below for some crazy gobbling up action.
