Can you go for a perfect pop with all your popcorn dice, or will you push your luck a little too far and end up with burnt kernels? Only one way to find out. Don’t let those buttery popcorn points slip through your fingers! Let’s get popping!

What Is It?

A dice rolling game where players roll popcorn-themed dice and must choose whether or not to push their luck for more points. Players will always re-roll kernels, set aside single pops for 1 point, and either set aside double pops for 2 points, or use them immediately to cancel burnt pops. Burnt pops are set aside unless cancelled and do not score any points, plus if you have 4 or more at the end of your roll, you must stop rolling immediately and do not get to score that turn. Once a player hits at least 30 points, the round finishes, and the player with the most points wins! Bonus – if a player is able to pop every die on their turn, they earn a “Perfect Pop,” which beats any score!

Who Is It For?

  • Ages 6+
  • 2 to 4 players — You can technically play with an infinite number (the game itself says 2-6) but the more players, the more downtime between turns, so I think 2-4 is my ideal count
  • Fans of push your luck
  • Fans of light gameplay / few rules


  • Plays quickly
  • Easy set up / clean up
  • Great for almost all ages
  • Affordable
  • Aesthetics – The cup is so cute and the dice are fun looking
  • Components – Great quality dice; engraved and have a nice weight to them
  • Rules – Clear, concise, well-written


  • Components – The cup is really loud as you shake the dice. It’s very lightweight plastic, doesn’t feel super sturdy. I wish it had a thin lining in it just to help with the noise
  • “Box” – The game comes on a card backing and then it’s just the popcorn cup, no actual box. It’s cute, but ultimately hard to store

Final Thoughts

It’s a super light game that’s easy to pull out with just about anyone at any time, though maybe not anywhere because of how loud it is. Even if you have some unlucky rolls or push your luck a bit too far, it’s still lots of fun and simple enough to play a few times in a row and try again if you want. It looks great on the table, it’s entertaining, and I definitely recommend it!
