A well-loved classic game of nerve and chance, Pop-Up Pirate is barrels of explosive fun.
To set the game up, there’s a small amount of assembly to be done, with stickers to carefully stick on to decorate the barrel and base.
Push the pirate down and he locks into the barrel in any such way that he’s going to be popped up randomly when a sword is pushed in–and nobody knows which sword would be the one!
Players make a choice a set of swords of their favourite colour and take it in turns to make a choice a slot, hoping that they may not be the one to make the pirate pop up with a start. Once the pirate has been popped, the remaining players take out their swords and start to play again until only the winner is left. Each and every time you push the pirate back into the barrel, the hole in order to make the him pop up changes, making Pop-Up Pirate a tense and exciting game in which you never know who’s going to be the one to launch the pirate into space. —Rachel Ediss
