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."
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 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.
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.

Great game! I wish the game board were a little more sturdy, but I guess that's just how they're made.Published 26 days ago by Paige
It's a shame how cheaply these games are made now. I expect the dice popper to crack before it's a year old as well as the game board. Read morePublished 1 month ago by SH
