Such a fun game! Tic-tac-toe is always sorta fun, but Gobblers is Very Fun. We always end up laughing at how we missed something so obvious or forgot that there was a littler gobbler under the one we just moved. This is fun for kids through adults. If your child understands how to play tic-tac-toe, they can play this game, but it's NOT a childish game. Quick games, so it's not a big time commitment... but you'll never play just once. Makes a great kid birthday gift, too!
