OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Trolls are in trouble in the DreamWorks' movie Trolls, and they're in trouble in the new Trouble: Trolls Edition Game. Just like in the movie, the Bergens are on the move and in search of Trolls to eat for their annual feast. If you're the first to get Poppy, Branch, DJ, and Fuzzbert safely home, you win. But watch out because the Bergens can pop up at any time. Will Guy Diamond protect you?

The Trouble: Trolls Edition Game plays like regular Trouble but with a few new movie-themed twists. Each player takes one set of four trolls, and then everyone takes turns pressing the dice roller and moving according to the dice rolled. 

If you pop a number 1–5, move any troll already on the track that many spaces forward. If you pop a six, you can bring one of your trolls out of the holding area. If you roll a Bergen Bite, your move is blocked, while other players can move one of their trolls to start. If you roll Guy Diamond, place the Guy Diamond figure in his special spot in your holding area. For as long as you have Guy Diamond, you won't lose a turn when you roll a Bergen Bite. But you have to give him away if another player rolls him. And if you roll a Hug Time, one of your trolls swaps places with another player's troll.

Along with moving space to space around the board, there are also zip lines that allow the trolls to move from tree to tree faster. If you land on a zip line's entry space by exact count, you can move directly to the next zip line.

The first player to get all four of his trolls home safely wins.

Is It Fun?
This is a fun new take on the classic game of Trouble that will appeal to kids who like the Trolls movie. The special game rules and movie-themed elements offer a different way to play. It's not just the game of Trouble with images from the movie on the game board. This will help transport players into the world of Troll Town as they play the game. And kids can use the figures for imaginative roleplay outside of the game.
Who It’s For
Trouble: Trolls Edition is for two to four players ages 5 and up. It's a fun take on the classic Pop-O-Matic game that will appeal to kids who like the Trolls movie.
What To Be Aware Of
The game comes with the gameboard and Pop-O-Matic dice roller, 16 Troll pawns, a Guy Diamond troll figure, four adhesive foam pads for the bottom of the dice roller, and instructions.
