Living Green With Jerinda: Gobblet and Fastrack . . . Two Fun New All-Wooden Board Games

Thank you to Blue Orange Games for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon.  All opinions expressed are my own.

We have long loved Blue Orange Games. They are a company that strives to be eco-friendly and provide games that are fun, long lasting, and usually compact as well. So when Blue Orange offered me the chance to review more of their amazing games, I naturally said yes.

Gobblet is a wooden game that reminds me of a mix of checkers, tic tac toe, and Connect 4, but with a fun twist: the wooden pieces can “gobble” their opponents smaller pieces in order to win the game. This game is fairly simple to learn but mastering the strategy could take years! Both my kids (11 & 6) love playing it even if they are not evenly matched. This game is very well made of solid wood that will likely never wear out with proper use. This game has quickly become a favorite in our home.

Fastrack is super fast paced game where you launch wooden discs and try to get them through the hole to your opponent’s side before they launch all of theirs onto your side. Both players play at the same time and the fastest fingers win! Again, both my kids love playing this one and Quinn (the 6 year old) is surprisingly better at aiming on this game than I would have thought. It is also well made from wood but the elastic band could wear out over time and use.

Both Gobblet and Fastrack can be purchased on Blue Orange Games website, Gobblet retails for $29.99 and Fastrack retails for $19.99.
