Parents passed this one back to me after many years sitting in their closet.

Premise is simple. Push and release the Pop-O-Matic die randomizer to determine who goes first - red or yellow (ketchup or mustard as we like to call it). Once the player has moved they hit the popper again. If their color comes up, they go again. If not it's the other player's turn. And repeat.

Played this for the first time with my 5 year old. Not to brag but playing standard checkers I'm sure I would win at least 10 out of 10. Ah, but the Pop-O-Matic can be your friend or your enemy. She more than once got a run of her color and was able to clear several of my pieces resulting in "King me!". Overall the popper improved her victories to 20-30% of our games. And each game she gets better.

She gives it a thumbs up and so do I.
