Returning to the 2013 Chicago Toy & Game Fair was Griddly Games, makers of Oversight, Wise Alec, Words of the Wise and many others.

Some might describe this as tic-tac-toe on steroids. It is so much more and really requires some forward thinking and strategy. But, rather than trying to describe how it works, check out this great instructional video!
Designed for 2-4 players, we noticed that 2-player games go rather quickly (5-10 minutes), while 4-player scrimmages can easily last 30-45 minutes as you fight to prevent the other three people from finishing first. There is definitely some strategy required, so I’d recommend it for children 8+.
