Players need to pay close attention and form a winning strategy to get all their pieces around the board and into their safe area. Luck plays a major role, but players will quickly see that strategy has a lot to do with winning. Counting and addition skills are also put to the test, making it a great game for young students.
How to Play
The excitement begins as soon as you press the classic Pop-O-Matic bubble to roll the die. The player that “rolls” the highest number goes first. To start, a player must roll a 6 to move his/her first peg out of the Home area and onto the playing path. From there, move as many spaces as the die indicates. The object of the game is to get pieces all the way around the board and into a goal.
Pegs can jump other pegs as they move around the board; however, if a peg’s final landing space is occupied by another piece—whether it's another players or your own—that piece is sent straight back to the beginning. The first player to get all 4 of their pegs from start to goal wins!
Set includes game board, plastic game unit with Pop-O-Matic die roller, 16 pegs, and instructions. For 2-4 players, ages 5 and up.
