If you visit a dollar store for supplies before going on a picnic or to the beach, you may want to buy 28 extra styrofoam cups. You will also need black and red Sharpie markers and a single edge razor blade. If available, buy the 6.4 oz. "Easy to Hold" cups made by Dart Container Corp. They have graduated size rings around the cups which make excellent guides for trimming cups level to desired sizes. Cut-down 8 cups to 3/4 size and 6 cups each to 1/2, and 1/4 sizes. Make six upside-down nestled stacks of the these cups (two extra 3/4 size cups are for Quarto game). Cover each stack with a full size overturned cup. If you are not using these cups for other games, mark an "X" on the bottom of each cup in three of the stacks for one player, or one team, and an "O" on cups in the other 3 stacks. If other games will also be played with these cups, see below for suitable manner to mark all cups.

You now have the means to play Gobblet. Other games (e.g. Tic-tac-toe, Nim, Dao, etc) may also be played with these cups. Print all rules of games you wish to play before leaving your home computer.

To play Quarto, mark in red, half the full size and half the 3/4 size cups with a large square, a small square, a large circle, and a small circle. Then mark the other half of the same sizes the same way, but in black. The eight Quarto characteristics for cups are tall or shorter cups, red or black color, squares or circles, large or small designs. Add a 1/4" band of their bottom color around each cup, just below their rims. For Tic-Tac-Chec game, three of the 1/2 size cups are marked in red with a X, B, or K and the other three cups are marked the same, but in black. Three of the 1/4 size cups have red letters X, R, and P^. The other three have black letters. Letters denote Bishops, Kings, Rooks, and Pawns. (Pawns move up and down the grid, the arrow is to show their current direction). Red and black X's are only to show color of cup. A Tic-tac-Doh win is by matching cup color, not by size of pyramids.
