Ages: 6 and upManufacturer: Spin Master Toys

The cleverly designed and titled Otrio runs rings around Tic-Tac-Toe. Played on a bamboo gameboard with 21 spaces and 4 color sets of 9 plastic circle pieces, players work to win in one of three ways: get three circles in a row of the same size and color; line up three of the same color circles from big to small or small to big; or place three same- colored circles concentrically in one space.

Designed for 2-4 players ages 8 and up, this mind-expanding strategy game had our testers planning, blocking and defending their moves. Players, competing individually or as teams, went round after round after round.
