What is it
The Dobble card game is simple yet thoroughly engaging card game.
It’s a simple tin of 55 round playing cards. Each card has on it 8 symbols selected from a possible 50 (heart, bomb, lips, waving hand, car, etc.) Each card shares one, and only one, matching symbol with every other card in the deck. The trick is to spot the matching symbol. It’s essentially a glorified game of snap. There are 5 suggested versions of play, the most simple of which is: deal each player one card, place the rest in a pile face up, the first player to shout out the symbol which matches their card with the one of the top of the pile takes the card, repeat until all the cards are gone. The player with the most cards at the end, wins.

What our experts think
Dobble was hugely popular; all the children who played loved it. Children became really competitive while playing, which is great fun and also lets them learn how to win or lose in a friendly way. This is also a great opportunity for children to develop social skills, such as communication and confidence, by playing as a group. Because of the fast paced nature of the game, children needed to pay attention and adapt the strategy they were using to keep up!
