This game is like tic-tac-toe with a twist. Just like in tic-tac-toe, you line up three of your pieces to win. But in this game, your piece can also gobble up another person’s piece (or even your own piece) because the game pieces are like nesting dolls. Say goodbye to boring ol’ tic-tac-toe! Bonus: Your child won’t even realize they’re building critical thinking, memory skills, and spatial awareness skills while having fun. Read more »

This game is like tic-tac-toe with a twist. Just like in tic-tac-toe, you line up three of your pieces to win. But in this game, your piece can also gobble up another person’s piece (or even your own piece) because the game pieces are like nesting dolls. You can also move any pieces you already placed on the board.
While it can get boring to play tic-tac-toe with a young child over and over again, this game shakes things up enough to make it fun for all ages in the family. The game is over quickly, which is a plus for a young child’s attention span. My 9-year-old and 4-year-old will sit and play game after game together because they’re having so much fun. Your child won’t even realize they’re building critical thinking, memory skills, and spatial awareness skills while having fun!
The manufacturer says this is for ages 5 and up, but according to several other families (including mine!) most 4-year-olds are ready for this game.
If you like this game, the same company also makes another game for young kids called Pengoloo, and that one’s a hit with the whole family too.
Note: Be sure to get this wooden version of this game, not the newer plastic version. The families who accidentally ordered the plastic version while on another site were bummed because the plastic edition isn’t nearly as sturdy.

I play this with my 7 year old when we want a quick game. The game play is fast and fun and set-up and clean up is minimal. At first, it's just a game of tic-tac-toe, but once players realize there is strategy involved the game reaches a new level of competition and fun.
