Gobblet! is an abstract game played on a 16-square wooden playing board with 24 wooden pieces that are 'nested' into 3 stacks of 4 pieces.  The object of the game is to align 4 of your pieces in a row.  Your pieces start nested and you can only play exposed on your turn.  In turns players can either: put a new piece on the board, move one of their pieces already on the board to any empty space, or gobble up any smaller size already on the board with a bigger one.  The first player to align 4 of any size vertically, horizontally, or diagonally in a row wins.  Your memory is also tested as you try to remember what color your larger piece is covering before you move it.
