Dobble is a great family card game available from Amazon from RRP £12.99. If you have never heard of Dobble until now you are not alone as up till January neither had I. When I was visiting the London Toy Fair with Mary from Over 40 and Mum to One we were invited to give it a try, with mixed results! This game reached the dizzy heights of 27 in the game chart last Christmas, I think it will be set to beat that in 2014 as one of the simplest but fun and handy card games I have tried.


Dobble is a round tin containing 55 cards, each with eight symbols (pictures) with only one symbol shared between any two cards. Yes that is it, but here is where the fun starts, with several different variations of how to play lets start with:

Mini Game #1

Shuffle the cards place one face down in front of each player, make the rest of the pile the draw pile, face up in the middle. The object of the game is to shout out the pair of symbols in common with your card. First to shout out wins, and the person with the most cards at the end is the winner.

Dobble Mini Game 1

There are 5 mini games in total and our family favourite is hot potato! Each variation of the game is fun and fast, and can be played with lots of age ranges as you can adapt the rules to suit. Dobble is recommended for 2-8 players ages 6+ but we think this is flexible and you could play in teams, as well as letting the younger ones play snap with the cards.

Dobble will be coming on holiday with us in October, as it will be ideal as the queuing boredom buster, and even Bingo Granny couldn’t complain about the simplicity of learning this new game. Dobble is also available for download in the i-tunes store, and can be played on i devices, with Android and even Facebook versions on their way. Beware! I have found this game highly addictive and so will you, it could even be the new Flappy Birds.
