Official Trouble: Bluey Edition Rules

"Hasbro Gaming Trouble: Bluey Edition" is a fun and engaging board game designed for kids, featuring the beloved characters from the Bluey animated series. The game follows the traditional Trouble game format but with a Bluey-themed twist. Here’s how to play:

Components:

  • Game Board: With a track for each player’s pieces.

  • 16 Pegs: Four pegs for each player, in different colors.

  • Pop-O-Matic Die Roller: Enclosed die roller in the center of the board.

  • Instructions: For setting up and playing the game.

Objective:

Be the first player to move all four of your pegs around the game board and into your finish area.

Setup:

  1. Players: 2 to 4 players.

  2. Initial Setup:

    • Each player chooses a color and takes four pegs of that color.

    • Place the game board on a flat surface.

    • Each player places their four pegs in their home base, the starting area of the same color.

Gameplay:

  1. Starting the Game:

    • Each player pops the Pop-O-Matic die roller once. The player who rolls the highest number goes first.

    • Play proceeds clockwise.

  2. On Your Turn:

    • Pop the Die: Press the Pop-O-Matic die roller to roll the die.

    • Moving a Peg Out:

      • To move a peg from your start area onto the track, you must roll a 6.

      • When you roll a 6, place one of your pegs onto the start space of your track and pop the die again.

    • Moving Around the Board:

      • Move your peg the number of spaces indicated by the die roll.

      • If you roll another 6, move one of your pegs out or move a peg already on the track and pop again.

    • Bumping Opponents:

      • If you land on a space occupied by an opponent's peg, that peg is sent back to their start area.

    • Winning the Game:

      • Move your pegs around the board track according to the die rolls.

      • To move a peg into your finish area, you must roll the exact number needed to get there.

  3. Special Rules:

    • Rolling a 6: Grants an extra turn. You can move a peg out of the start area if it is not already on the track, or move any peg the rolled number of spaces and then pop again.

    • Exact Moves: You must roll the exact number needed to move a peg into the finish area. If you cannot do so, your peg remains in its current position until your next turn.

Winning the Game:

  • The first player to move all four of their pegs around the board and into their finish area wins the game.

Strategy Tips:

  1. Utilize Sixes Wisely: Rolling a 6 is powerful. Use it to move pegs out of the start area or advance pegs strategically.

  2. Block Opponents: Position your pegs to block opponents and send their pegs back to the start area when possible.

  3. Plan Exact Moves: Keep track of the exact moves needed to get your pegs into the finish area to win the game efficiently.

"Hasbro Gaming Trouble: Bluey Edition" is a delightful twist on the classic Trouble game, adding excitement and familiarity with Bluey characters. It’s perfect for family game nights and helps kids develop counting and strategic thinking skills.
