  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:

Pros:Requires no skill to play, fun for all ages, and is good for competitive players

Cons:Fun after playing once or twice, but that'll be it for the day

The Bottom Line: It's a blast when you want to have everyone come together, but it doesn't stand up to the iPad or other electronics.


I've owned the Hasbro Trouble Board Game for many years now, and to this day, family members and friends still enjoy bringing out their competitive side by playing this game. It's a classic race-and-chase game with the ability to make players feel as if it's every man for himself. Whether you team up with a friend or try to make amends with all the players, someone always ends up in trouble.

How to play: The Hasbro Trouble Board Game is one with a simple concept: In order to win, be the first player to send your four game pieces all the way around the board by moving spaces determined by rolling the dice. Four different-colored pawns are included for each player, and they're required to travel clockwise around the board as fast as they can. The "trouble" comes when an opponent's piece lands on a space occupied by your own, thus sending yours back home (the beginning).

Features: The Pop-O-Matic feature automatically tumbles dice when pressed and released. It's located in the center of the game board so that everyone can easily reach it. When you press down on the Pop-O-Matic dice roller, watch the die come to life and land on a random number. This number will determine how many spaces your pawn can move next.

The game board includes the Pop-O-Matic dice roller built in and is specifically designed with holes to fit each of the pawns. Vibrant colors also decorate the entire game board to match the colors of the pawns and grab your attention while playing. The four different-colored pawns are provided as well, totalling 16 pawns in all.

Replay value: Game is best played with a group of other people, or at least one other opponent. It's not about beating the clock, so this game can last for different lengths of time. If you don't have any patience, you might grow tired after so  many turns because there's never a clear winner until the very end. With every push of the Pop-O-Matic, players are given an opportunity to steal victory by pure luck. After one or more rounds with this game though, you'll most likely want to move onto something else.

Portability: The board game is very slim in width, so traveling with it is no problem. If you want to play the game during a long car ride or on the bus, then you might want to be wary of potholes on the road or hitting bumps. If strong enough, the board game pieces may bounce out of their holes and game progression may be abruptly interrupted. This is a game best played in still motion or if you were just traveling on the highway where obstacles are non-existant.

Protection: The Hasbro Trouble Board Game is completely plastic, so dropping it won't produce anything more than a few scratches. Accidentally stepping on a game piece will feel like stepping on a small lego (but not as painful). The game board pieces won't break or be crushed under pressure or weight, so sitting on the pawns won't cause any damage either. Spilling liquids or food on the board is as simple as wiping with a paper towel. There's no batteries operating the Pop-O-Matic, so you don't have to worry about anything getting ruined. 

Hazards: Only problem is that you shouldn't allow any small children ages 3 and under to be within easy access to the game pieces. The pawns are small and can easily be detected due to their bright colors, so they're more likely to be spotted if reachable. If necessary, also be aware that pets can mistake the pieces for food and place the game board on an elevated area (ex: a table). 

All in all, the Hasbro Trouble Board Game has the potential to be fun for everyone. I've never had a problem with the Pop-O-Matic and I've never lost any of the game pieces. If needed, this game could make a boring Friday instantly become your next Family Game Night. On a scale of 1-10, I'd say the Hasbro Trouble Board Game is an 8.5.
