Product Description

Trouble Board Game

Amazon.com

Trouble is a board game with a simple concept: Be the first player to send your four game pieces all the way around the board, moving spaces determined by rolls of the dice. The "trouble" of the title comes when an opponent's piece lands on a space occupied by your piece, thus sending yours back to the beginning. Parents will likely remember the game from their youth, or at least remember the game's signature gimmick, the pop-o-matic dice roller. The Pop-o-matic is a dome-shaped clear plastic housing for the dice in the center of the board game that automatically tumbles the dice when pressed down and released. This feature, plus the board's plastic slots that hold the game pieces in place, make Trouble a perfect travel game--car or boat motion won't upset the game's progress. It is indeed satisfying to press, slap, or pound the pop-o-matic. It's strong enough to withstand the frustration of the losing player(s). The game's simplicity makes it easy to jump into without elaborate explanations or practice games for new players, but it's utter lack of strategy will likely limit interest to just a few rounds. --Porter B. Hall

I think even young children will enjoy this game. My daughter was under 4 when we started, but she loves the counting aspect of the game. It's great for number recognition skills because you make them say the number on the die outloud as they "roll." The only rule I don't like is that you need a "6" to start. Often that makes the beginning a bit slow if no one gets a 6. Once things get going, it's a lot of fun and easy to play. The thing in the middle is harder to push than it looks, so for very young children, they may not be strong enough to push it. 3-4 year olds should have no problem though and it makes a satisfying pop. A fun and easy game -- avoid if your child still puts small plastic pieces in his mouth though.

"I sat hunkered over the board. Five years old, and a "Trouble" champion. My brother stared me down. At eight years old, he knew how to intimidate. My glass of chocolate milk quivered in my nervous hands..." --me... circa 1971 or 1972
The sheer delight of a simple game will be satisfying as you see your children pop on the plastic bubble to 'toss the dice.' And you'll smile as you know those dice won't be easily lost. Milton Bradley were smart to use such a creative device without losing an ounce of fun.
Easy to learn, keeps a child's attention, and just plain good 'ol fun.
My brother usually beat me. But I went at the game as intensely as Michael Jordan plays basketball.
I fully recommend "Trouble."

They sure don't make this like they used to. I played this game as a kid and remember it being much more sturdy , with a hard plastic bottom, and the popper not as flimsy. My son recieved this game as a christmas present, and most of the time the popper won't even pop the dice, and the game board it self is very flimsy. It doesn't even come in a hard sided box, just a thinly constructed jacket. Needless to say I'm very dissappointed in the quality.

I'm a 27 year old mother of 3. I remember loving this game when I was a kid. I was so dissapointed when I opened this game. I couldn't believe how cheesey it is. You can barely 'POP' the dice. And when my kids POP the bubble all the game pieces fly around. Plus the bottom of the game has a pop in piece of cardboard. Shouldn't the bottom be covered with hard plastic??

I also wish there was something to hold all the pieces because my kids (like many others) abuse the box and all of the pieces fall out and get lost.

****Can't the board game makers start making harder cases or Tins so we all don't have a stack of smashed boxes and missing pieces.

The game itself is fun...but I ended up throwing it away because pieces got lost way to fast.

The version received can be found in Walmart right now for about $7.77. Even without a discounted price, the game is only about $10.00. I paid the almost $17.00 in hopes of receiving the actual one and got this off-brand version instead. At least that's what I call it. If this version is supposed to be an upgrade from the original, I must not know what upgrade really means. This ones is cheaply made and not nearly as nice or as decorative as the original. I am very disappointed, especially since they had the audacity to keep the original picture of the board game up. Also for an extra note, when I purchased this I do not recall the other pictures that I see now visible when I first found this seller. Makes me wonder, because this version of Trouble is not worth $17 or so. It doesn't even sell for that much at Toys R Us without a discount. Highly disappointed. I would not recommend this to anyone that has played the original version of Trouble. You will not be pleased.

I like many other adults rember this game from when I was a child. My wife and I purchased it as a Christmas gift for our kids. My kids love the game, and have they have lots of fun playing it. Educationally they learn to count and strategize as part of the game(which piece to move, what pieces are at risk).

The construction of the game seems quite flimsy compared to the game I had as a young boy. The kids have to really push down on the bubble to get the die to jump.

Another interesting note, this isn't a complaint, just an observation. With four players the game takes a little longer to play, all four of us were knocking opposing players back to home every few turns. This didn't seem to bother the kids too much, they enjoyed forcing their siblings pieces home, but it happened so often that I commented to my wife that the game might take all day...

Overall the game is fun and the kids enjoy playing it. Sometimes a player can get stuck waiting for a six (we allow 1 and 6 to speed up the game), and there are some games where everyone keeps getting their game pieces sent home, in games like that my kids begin to stop sending other players pieces home. The quality of the product itself is rather cheap, and the little ones have to push the bubble with both hands to get it to pop but I wouldn't let that stop me from purchasing this game.

You know a game is good when kids not even 10 years old like it. You know is a game is good when grandparents want to play it every time you come over to visit them. And you know a game is good when (in my case) college kids will get together on some Friday night and play it for hours.
Did I forget to mention that this game is good?!
"Trouble" is definitely habit-forming, and this is only magnified when you get four people to play. I've been around people who get so competitive (myself included sometimes) that they will literally pound that little plastic bubble that determines how many spaces you get to move. And it doesn't matter how many times you warn them, pounding the plastic bubble is not good for the game (especially when it is your bubble they are pounding!).
College kids aside, young ones and older ones will enjoy this game, too. I can remember many a time visiting my grandparents' house and this is what we'd play. And if you've never seen a grandparent get competitive, watch out! They just might have a few tricks up their elderly sleeve.
I also think this toy could be beneficial in education, especially among kids who are just learning to count or something. The game is fun, and when learning can be fun, it's always more enjoyable.
As far as durability goes, it depends. If you have friends who get really into it and have a tendency to just pound that plastic bubble into oblivian, you may find yourself buying a replacement before too long. But as long as no one gets overly excited, this is a game that will last for years. And only after MAJOR usage will you ever have to replace it.
If you're looking for something to wet your competitive drive, or you are just looking for a good educational toy for the classroom, "Trouble" is anything but.
