This game is almost exactly like Trouble. If you already own that game, I would not recommended buying this game for the small twist: If a penguin lands on the end of a bridge, the player slides a lever and penguins on the top of the bridge fall into the "water" below, going back to their starting places.

There are 3 faults (1 major and 2 minor) with the game design:

(1) major - the penguins don't stay in their holes very well. It is very easy to knock the penguins out when you're reaching to pop the die, moving your pieces around, or just accidentally jostling the board a bit. On top of the bridges, the holes are especially too big and the penguins simply lean over. Some of the (unintentional) fun of the game comes from laughing at how many times you've accidentally knocked over someone's penguins.

(2) minor - the bubble with the die inside is not as effective as the one in Trouble. About a dozen times during our last game, the die got stuck between faces or didn't seem to bounce at all. Also note that the number two on the die is shown with 2 in-line pips (I think they're called) and not 2 diagonal ones like most dice.

(3) minor - the starting locations and ending locations are not color coded at all. Younger players may have difficulty remembering their home area or knowing the area they're supposed to finish at.

If you don't have Trouble, you might go with this, but having both, I can tell you that Trouble feels more substantially built.

A Kid's Review on December 28, 2011
Another reviewer summed this game up well. It's basically a ripoff of Trouble. Similar popper bubble with a die, similar rules with four pegs (penguins) you move around from home base to finish. The bubble is undersized; the die does not turn well and gets stuck in between faces constantly. A tiny jostle to the board to get the die to make up its mind sends all the penguins falling out of their holes. Fights ensue as to who was where. Even unintentional bumps to the board send the penuins falling over out of their spots. The concept of the "ice bridge" and making your opponents fall through is cute but the game physically was so poorly designed with regards to the penguins constantly falling out of their spaces that this is a game that I cannot see playing very often. We have Trouble and the Star Wars edition Trouble; both are much sturdier.

My son and daughter are ages six and three, and this had been their favorite game to play for over a year. We love to play it as a family too. Very fun, lots of action, cute game pieces (much cuter than the plain Trouble). It is great to have on hand for playdates too. All kids seem to love it. Highly recommended!

I was disappointed by this game. The popper is cheaply made,taking a bit of work to make it really pop. The penguins are easy to accidentally knock over, which is frustrating as well

I haven't come across a more worse game to put together than this one! First the penguins are almost damaged in the sense that one cannot put them together! So if some pieces don't function well, the game itself is useless! I thought it would be a fun game but if it takes too much effort to assemble such a simple looking board game then there isn't any joy left in even trying to play it!

If you planning a play date or sleep over for your kids, then get Pop N Drop Penguins Game By International Playthings game. Kids will have guaranteed entertainment :)
There are 16 little penguins that move around the board. I love the fact that the dice is secured from being lost.
Game develops counting and motor skills. Great toy!

This game is definitely a knock-off of Trouble which is actually why we bought it--both my husband and I remember loving that game as kids and wanted to share it with our almost 4-year-old daughter (we are sick of Candyland and looking for something else). The penguin twist with the ice bridges is a fun idea. Our biggest complaint is simply that the game is cheaply made and the penguins CONSTANTLY fall out of the holes. We have tried pushing the button gently, but pretty much whatever we do, the penguins go rolling and we're left scrambling under the table trying to locate them and then remember where they were on the board.

My other complaint is that as an adult, this game is actually terribly boring. We've modified the rules a bit to make it go faster, but it still takes forever to play, and it's the same thing over and over again. Our daughter doesn't get as bored as quickly as we do though, so maybe it's just an adult thing :)
