The Shopkins Pop Up Game Resembles Another Familiar Game
Once you take this Shopkins Pop Up Game out of the box, you’ll see that it is almost identical to the game Trouble by Milton Bradley. It’s like I’m playing the exact same game except there are pictures of Shopkins on the board. There’s a popper in the middle with a dice that tells you how many spaces to move; there are four colored teams that are trying to make it around the board to home base – sound familiar? You can see the resemblance clearly in these pictures.
Shopkins Pop Up Game Features Season 1 Favorites
The Shopkins Pop N Race Game has pictures of lots of popular Shopkins from Season 1. The Shopkins featured on the game box are Lippy Lips, Chee Zee, Apple Blossom (the green one), Strawberry Kiss, Cupcake Queen, Kooky Cookie, D’lish Donut (the pink one) and Cheeky Chocolate (I think, that one is questionable because of the colors, I could be wrong).
Buy the Shopkins Pop Up Game Online!
We bought the Shopkins board game on Amazon for our two youngest children because they are totally into Shopkins! The youngest one I’ll admit is only 3 years old and the box does say for ages 5 & up – but I’m telling you, he would be devastated if he didn’t get to play the Shopkins game too!
- The Shopkins graphics on the game are sweet!
- Play with 2-4 players
- 4 different colored pegs; yellow, pink, blue and green.
Playing the Shopkins Pop Up Game
As I mentioned above, the game is very similar to how Trouble is played. The gist of it simple…
- There are 4 different colored players.
- Each player has to make it around the board and into the home space first.
- Pop a “6” in order to get out and begin traveling the board.
- The number you pop is the number of spaces you will move around the board.
- If another player happens to land on your peg, you have to return to home.
- Pop a “6” while you are in play on the board and that gains you another turn.
There are no actual Shopkins that come with this pop-up game. The pegs are just that, pegs. The only Shopkins you see are on the packaging and the game board. Don’t let this detour you though, for the price, it’s well worth it because the kids really dig this game. What I really enjoyed about this game as a parent was NOT having to learn a complicated new kids game and put a million pieces together. This game was already assembled and ready to go!
