You genius. You thought of an item with the very same name as our topic. Does it get any more spot onish than this? I like how pretty the game colors came out.

This was one of those gimmick games that, like Operation, I always wanted but never got. At the end of the day my favourite board games are still Monopoly and Scrabble!

Gloriously intense colours!

Awesome work recreating the Trouble board and the box! I remember at about this time each year the holiday TV commercials would start for Trouble, Battleship, and Connect Four.

He-he-he.. Pop-O-Matic Bubble.
