Product Description

Can you gib faster than they can gab?

Pick a category from one of the cards and then press the center button to switch it on. The lights on the game board light up, half yours, half theirs.

Quick! Say a word that matches the category and then press your button. When you do, your lights begin to move toward your opponent.

Now they've got to think fast, say a word, and press their button to get their lights moving back toward you!

You can set the lights to move either 2 seconds per light, 1 and 1/2 seconds per light, or if you're really feeling ambitious, just one second per light.

    I bought this toy for my Grandson. He really enjoyed playing this Christmas Day. I think that his Mom and Dad enjoyed it as much as he did.

    It was very easy to set up for play immediately. No long instructions/directions. Quick moving game to let all have a chance to play without getting bored.

    It was a great novelty at Christmas time. I don't know how long the enjoyment will last but for now we are having a blast with it!

    The plus of this game is that the rules are simple and one can be playing within 60 seconds after receiving the game. One the other hand, they are also very open-ended.. with too narrow an interpretation of categories the game is over too soon.. with too broad an interpretation, it can go back and forth forever. The game works for a wide variety of ages, but is best when the players are pretty easily matched. All in all, better as a "filler" in between activities than as the "main event" on a game night.

    Fast moving lots of fun game. My Grandson is 13yrs and he likes the challenge of the game. I would recommend it for children and adults.

    My Review of GibGab is that this is such a fun game!

    My kiddos are 19, 15, 13 and 9 and they all enjoy playing! It is fun for littles and bigs! You can cater the categories to different age groups and it is such a fun brain exercise. I would definitely recommend this game. It also travels well so it makes a great game to play in the car or airplane.

    I use this toy in my pediatric OT practice with my older children to support executive function and memory skills along with social thinking skills. It has been successful in targeting these areas of function and adaptive ways to play are easily implemented.

    My Review of GibGab

    Posted 09/14/2021 by

    GibGab is a game that can be taken anywhere due to its smaller size. I appreciate that the instruction & category cards are held within the game magnetically. There are no loose pieces to worry about. The box is very sturdy & compact which is nice for storage. The game itself is easy to use, the sound level is good-not extremely loud or too quiet, & the lights are bright. The game keeps score which is great & is very easy to see after each round. There are many categories given for play, but because players can create their own, the game will not go stale. One thing the game does not have is a way to "flag" a duplicate, silly or incorrect answer in order to stop the timer. This is not a big deal, but depending on who is playing, could cause some arguments.

    Age Appropriateness for GibGab

    NOTE: The orange color in the chart above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
