Gobbit, Fast Action Fun for All the Family!

I’ve been sent a great children’s game to review called Gobbit.


It’s new, it’s fun, it helps speed up reflexes, information processing and encourages children to focus on what they are doing a must if you have a daydreamer like me.  It is also great for encouraging healthy competition and teaching children how to lose gracefully rather than going off in a huff as many little ones tend to do.  In each box you will find cards, an instruction booklet and a wrist band.  The cards feature 4 animals in three different colours.  These animals eat one another depending on their colour and a rigid food chain.  You will find snakes, flies, chameleons or a gorilla.  Cards are placed quickly with the animal facing up in front of the players cards.  The winner of each round takes the stacks in front.  The winner is the person at the end with all the cards.  There are additional ways that the game can be played once you get to grips with the basics.  Games are pretty fast and can be over in about 10 to 15 minutes.


Players must either slap their card to protect it from a predator or smack their opponents to attack / eat.  Things get even more exciting if you turn your card and discover a gorilla!!!  Gorillas can attack anyone and there are a few random ones in the box just hope your opponent(s) are not lucky enough to have them all.  This is a game that all the family can play the only thing I would suggest is that you watch the slaps being given by older children.


My girls loved playing this game and it didn’t take long to get the hang of it.


The faster you go the harder it becomes and the quicker players need to think and react.  It got a bit confusing when we speed up the game but that just added to the fun and hilarity of it all.

The packaging is sturdy, brightly coloured and pretty compact.  Recommended for ages 7 plus and available from Riles of Pay priced at £14 this is great for keeping the children entertained and their minds active.

We were sent this game for review purposes.  All views are our own.
