Toy Type BG ES GE GP PZ SR Gobblet is fun and plays like Tic-Tac-Toe, but with strategy and memory mixed in. This all wooden board game takes just seconds to learn, but a lifetime to master. Gobble up and line up four pieces in a row to win. Elegantly designed and sustainably made, Gobblet self-stores all the playing pieces and looks great on display. Its play is fast-moving and its rules are astonishingly simple. Gobblet is a perfect strategy game for the whole family. Gobblet was invented by Thierry Denoual during a flash of inspiration while in a coffee shop in the late ’90s. After consulting chess masters, mathematicians, and hiring a wood worker, Denoual partnered with Julien Mayot to bring the wooden strategy game to market. Julien loaded an old Jeep with 1,000 games and embarked upon a three-month, 22,000 mile road trip across the United States, which resulted in visits to hundreds of stores and great sales.
