Re: [Unity_Games] Re: Game called Gobblet
- Gobblet does not feel at all like Quarto, except in
the fact that both games are won by getting four in a
row. The "gimmick" in Gobblet is that a piece can be
used to cover up another piece while the basic
"gimmick" in Quarto is that a player chooses his
opponent's playing piece. I think that Quarto is a
much deeper (and more elegant) game.
