Objective of Bounce-Off Pop-Out
The objective of Bounce-Off Pop-Out is to bounce balls into the tray in order to match the pattern on a card before time runs out.
Setup for Bounce-Off Pop-Out
- Place the tray in the middle of the playing surface between all of the players.

Playing Bounce-Off Pop-Out
You will play Bounce-Off Pop-Out over a number of rounds.
Each round begins with a card being drawn. The players will look at the card to see what challenge needs to be completed. Pictured on the card is a pattern on a tray. To complete the challenge the player(s) have to replicate the pattern on the tray by bouncing balls and having them land in the corresponding spots in the tray. Once the card has been studied, the timer is started.
The current player(s) will then start bouncing balls hoping that they land in the correct spaces in the tray. When bouncing balls you should follow a couple rules:
First the ball needs to bounce at least once on the table before in lands inside the tray.
If a ball does not land in the tray or in lands in a space that doesn’t match the pattern on the current card, you can take the ball and bounce it again.
The player(s) will keep bouncing balls until they either complete the challenge or they run out of time. If they complete the challenge card in time they will keep it as it will score one point. If they fail to complete the challenge, the card is set aside as the player(s) didn’t score a point.
You will then play another round.
In the competitive mode the players will divide into teams. If there are only two players, each player is their own team.
For this mode you will use the blue challenge cards.
Each player/team takes all of the balls of one color. The players/teams will take turns playing a round by themselves.
If a team completes a challenge before time runs out, they will keep the card which scores them a point.
The first team to get five cards wins the game.
All Play Mode
For the All Play Mode you will use the purple challenge cards.
In this mode all of the players will play at the same team as they are working together to try and complete the challenge within time.
If the players can finish a pattern in time, they will keep the card.
Should the players complete at least three of the five cards in time, all of the players win the game.
