Run, little mice, run! Build this fun game’s crazy Mouse Trap contraption, but then, beware – you surely are not looking for your mouse pawn to get trapped by it. Race to the finish and do not look back!
Build a better mousetrap? We dare you. Naturally, the object is to trap mice in the mousetrap, at the same time as avoiding getting trapped. By rolling the die, you proceed around the game board, collecting cheese pieces and building a mousetrap little by little. Once complete, you set the wheels in motion, as it were, to check out to capture the opposition’s mice. But that is no peculiar trap. With this contraption you start by turning the crank, that rotates the gears, that push the lever, that moves the shoe, that kicks the bucket, that sends the ball down the stairs and into the gutter, that ends up in the rod that releases a second ball, that falls through the bathtub and onto the springboard, that catapults the diver into the washtub, that causes the cage to fall and–whew!–optimistically, capture a mouse. The last “mouse” left uncaptured wins –Alison Golder
