A well-loved classic game of nerve and chance, Pop-Up Pirate is barrels of explosive fun. A small amount of assembly is required to set the game up, and stickers are provided to carefully decorate the barrel and base. Press the pirate down and he locks into the barrel in such a way that he will be popped up randomly when a sword is pushed in, and nobody knows which sword will be the one. Players select a set of swords in their favourite colour and take it in turns to choose a slot, hoping that they won't be the one to make the pirate pop up. Once the pirate has been popped, the remaining players take out their swords and start to play again until only the winner is left. Every time you push the pirate back into the barrel, the hole which will make the him pop up changes, making Pop-Up Pirate a tense and exciting game in which you never know who is going to be the one to launch the pirate into space. Can be played with 2 to 4 players.

I found it to be durable, the only worry is losing some of the swords which may be too small for the very young (or old).
There's no batteries = no extra cost and there's no staring at a screen. Great.
I was a bit skeptical at first however after about 15mins I (and many others) started to get into it.
The product itself and the supporting accessories are made of very good quality material given the price point and is nicely presented with a durable and quality feel to it.
The game itself is very easy to play and involves firstly lowering the pirate downwards as far as it goes and then distributing the swords evenly between all the players. Each player then takes it in turn to stick each sword into the barrel (stabbing the pirate in the process!) and the one that activates the sensitive spring mechanism will eject the pirate upwards and will be eliminated from the game. You then repeat the process and the person that manages to not activate it will remain and be declared the eventual winner.
The barrel changes the location of the spring sensitive slot each time so you never know where it's new location will be.
You can have between 2-4 players playing the game and we found that playing with 4 made the game a lot more effective.
You can play it at varying speeds although my elderly relative tested our patience on a number of occasions, especially when he was declared the winner!. My 6 year old cousin really enjoyed it and although this game targets the 4-8 age group, we found that it's a game that can be played by a wide range of people from all ages (above 4 ideally) from a number of different backgrounds. It was Exciting, Tense and A Barrel Of Fun.Read more ›
A really fun, simple game that doesn't require any tricky construction and is easy to use.
