Did you ever play Trouble with your friends as a kid? I fucking loved that game. I still love that game.
Can’t you just conjure up the satisfying feeling of popping that trademark Pop-O-Matic dome? Remember the frustration you felt when someone landed on your piece and sent you back to the beginning? The feeling of karmic glee when you got your revenge? The unbeatable satisfaction of pulling off the perfect die roll to get that last peg over the finish line?
And gosh, don’t you remember thinking how much better the game would be if, in place of the same old boring original version, you had an officially licensed Star Wars edition instead?
…yeah, me neither. But damned if they didn’t decide the world needed one anyway.
Not a Star Wars fan?
Good news! According to Wikipedia, they’ve already been cheapening this game with other unnecessary themed editions for years! Take your game pieces for a spin around the racetrack with Trouble: Cars 2, or just let them go, let them go! with Trouble: Frozen. There’s even Trouble: SpongeBob SquarePants for those times when you feel the irresistible urge to move pegs around a board while contemplating who lives in a pineapple under the sea.
Or maybe just stare out a window instead and lament what this world is coming to.
As Nutty Hubby remarked when I texted him this photo, “Out of hand, this has gotten.”
