Each set comes with 45 x character cards, 10 x power cards and 1 x mini Pop!, with the aim of the game being to win 3 x power cards  by making sets (three cards with the same number) or runs (three cards of the same colour, in number order). The light competitive strategy game is perfect for card game fans, kids, fans of Disney and families. What's more – all the Something Wild card sets can be combined for even more fun!

A parade of Pop-Tarts forms a line between the Toaster Card and the Fridge Card An arrow shows which direction the tarts currently flow. On your turn players always "eat" the Pop-Tart (i e take the card) currently at the front of the line to score points. However through clever use of Action Cards players may manipulate the line through direction-switching tart placement or even double-stacking to jockey their high-point Pop-Tarts into optimal chomping position. Players can go for Bonus Cards which offer 5 extra points for combinations of particular flavors eaten heated or frozen. After all Pop-Tart cards are "eaten" the player with the most points wins!
