Official Hasbro Gaming Bop It! Rules

Bop It! is a fast-paced and exciting game that tests your reflexes, memory, and coordination. It's a perfect choice for a fun solo challenge or a lively group game night! Here's how to play:

Number of Players: 1 or more players (can be played solo or passed around in a group)

Objective: Follow the Bop It! commands by twisting, pulling, or bopping the corresponding parts of the unit as quickly and accurately as possible. Avoid missing commands or responding incorrectly to stay in the game (solo play) or avoid getting eliminated (group play).


  • Bop It! electronic game unit


  1. Install Batteries (if needed): Following the instructions, install the required batteries into the Bop It! unit.

  2. Choose a Game Mode: There's typically a switch or button on the Bop It! unit to choose between Solo or Pass It modes.


The fun of Bop It! comes from following the unit's spoken commands while responding quickly and accurately with the corresponding physical action:

  • Bop It!: When you hear "Bop It!", press down on the top button of the unit.

  • Twist It!: When you hear "Twist It!", rotate the entire unit around its axis.

  • Pull It!: When you hear "Pull It!", pull the knob located on the side of the unit outwards.

Solo Play:

  1. Start the Game: Turn on the Bop It! unit and choose Solo mode (refer to the instructions for your specific model).

  2. Listen to Commands: The unit will announce a sequence of Bop It!, Twist It!, and Pull It! commands at an increasing speed.

  3. Respond Accurately: As you hear each command, perform the corresponding action (bop, twist, or pull) as quickly as possible.

  4. Stay in the Game: If you successfully complete the sequence of commands, the Bop It! unit will continue with a new, longer sequence. However, if you miss a command or respond incorrectly, the game will end with a buzzer sound, and the unit will announce your final score (number of commands completed).

Pass It Mode (Multi-player):

  1. Start the Game: Turn on the Bop It! unit and choose Pass It mode (refer to the instructions for your specific model).

  2. Pass the Unit: Begin with one player holding the Bop It! unit.

  3. Listen to Commands: Similar to Solo mode, the unit will announce a sequence of Bop It!, Twist It!, and Pull It! commands.

  4. Respond in Turn: Each player takes a turn following the commands as they are announced.

  5. Pass and Play: After completing their turn (responding to the sequence), the player holding the Bop It! unit passes it to the next player in line.

  6. Elimination: If a player misses a command or responds incorrectly, they are out of the game. The Bop It! unit will make an elimination sound, and the game continues with the remaining players.

  7. Last Player Standing Wins: The game continues until only one player remains. This player is the Bop It! champion!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Focus on the Commands: Pay close attention to the spoken instructions from the Bop It! unit.

  • React Quickly: The speed of the commands will increase as you progress in the game, so be prepared to react quickly and accurately.

  • Develop a Rhythm: Try to anticipate the rhythm of the commands and develop a smooth flow of movement between Bop, Twist, and Pull actions.
