Trouble is a fun game for kids and adults alike. Counting the pieces movement can help younger children with their counting skills. Minor strategy is also useful. Milton Bradley really came up with something special when they introduced "popomatic" a dice roller that wouldn't let you lose the dice.

This travel version has some nice features but a serious flaw. The size is nice (about 5 inches square). The cover stays firmly attached but comes off easily when done right. The pieces are pegs that fit into holes and each color has an extra peg (a nice feature in a game with small parts). Yes, this is a travel edition so it does have small parts. If your kids can't handle small parts then you might want to avoid this one.

But the real problem is the popomatic feature in the center of the board. Unlike its larger cousin, this one is very hard to push. Both of my kids need help and they are strong for their ages. My wife and I help them or we provide other dice (which defeats the idea of the popomatic feature.

It is a fun game and the price and size make it desirable but the popomatic feature may cause trouble for many buyers.

When we travled from the West Coast to the South we needed some easy travel toys for our 4 yr old daughter. While this should be played with another adult, she found it to be fun and entertaining. Bumpy rides in the car are not so good for this toy, better for the hotel room or stationary places. The pieces can get bumped out of their spaces pretty easily. Otherwise, great toy for a great price.

This product is definitely not as good as the original full size game, but if you need a smaller size version it will fulfill your "trouble" craving!

WARNING:
CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs. (As stated on Product page)

No complaints with this product.

Was raised myself w/ a variation of this game called Aggravation.

Changed rules a bit to speed up play, especially for young people (children).

To choose who has first roll for starting the game, players roll the die, high roll plays first. Choosing rolls of the die may not be taken as moves on the board.
Rolling turns rotate clockwise from first player.

Roll a 1 or a 6 player may take a peg from base to player's start space on board. (at players discretion)
Roll a 1 or a 6, take an extra roll up to 3 times.
Roll a 4, move one peg 4 spaces backwards. (Handy and a strategy if peg is to the left of Home entrance 4 spaces or less. Ie., said peg does NOT need to go all the way around the board to enter the Home section. Pegs in Home section are excluded from this rule.)
Pegs in Home section may not be moved to top space available if die shows more than spaces necessary to reach the top spot available. (Ie., if 2 spaces are available to reach top available spot, rolling a 3 or higher won't get you there.)
Cannot jump or pass your own peg with another of your own.
Land your peg on same space as an opponent's peg, opponent's peg returns to it's base.
If a player rolls a 1 or a 6 which can not be used w/ a peg move, no extra turn. (Altho, I cannot think of a situation where a 1 cannot be used.)

I think that about covers the rules played in our family.
Sons were raised w/ this game, not only fun, but also a good teaching method of sportsmanship.

Has sent this game as gifts to my son's families and families of friends.

AND, I still have the original Trouble Travel Game which I purchased around 25 years ago w/ all the original pieces.

I rated this a 4 although I was disappointed. The description led me to believe that it was not as small as it was. My 8 year old Grandson said that he already had the game but in a slightly smaller version. We did play it until there was a winner but then he was bored. Next time I will pay closer attention to the age group. However, it is a good car/travel item.

The game arrived as promised, just in time to gift it to a young man and his mom as they were leaving on a cruise. The mom sent me pictures of them playing it on the plane and on the cruise. He loved it - it was the perfect size for travel! Would definitely buy again from this vendor. :)

:well, I was thinking it would be cool, because it was a travel version
:I found it has an EXTREMELY small bobble so when you press it, it rolls the same number three times in a row
:the bobble is supposed to be a little bit larger for players to enjoy the game

While I was hoping to gut this for the pop-o-matic bubble and put a D20 in it, I discovered that it was much too small. Still, the game serves perfectly as Trouble, and I'll have it in my board game closet for as long as it lasts.
