I'm pretty certain pop up pirate is different now. We bought it last Christmas. You occasionally get a repeat slot if you push the thingy back down before you take the swords out but it usually changes place. Agree about the difficulty of buckaroo. Not tried it as a drinking game (yet )SamNichols said:Pop up Pirate was a great game, until you realised which one the one that made it pop up was (it was the same one every time), then the loser was just the one with the last sword left). Buckaroo, meanwhile, is fantastic, and makes a superb drinking game too (the new version, with the 3 difficulty switch is impossible).
