Build a better mousetrap? We dare you. Naturally, the object is to trap mice in the mousetrap, while avoiding getting trapped. By rolling the die, you proceed around the game board, collecting cheese pieces and building a mousetrap bit by bit. Once complete, you set the wheels in motion, as it were, to try to capture the opposition’s mice. But this is no ordinary 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 leads to 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.- hopefully, capture a mouse. The last “mouse” left uncaptured wins. The crazy zany game of catching rodents using the wildest mousetraps in the world. Flush the toilet to activate 1 of 3 great traps. Box Contains
This is an excitingly funny game for 2-4 players aged 6 years plus. Each player has a mouse and moves round the board on the throw of the dice. Moving round the board you follow the instructions on the space you land on and along the way build the contraption.
The contraption has a crank and a bucket, a helping hand and bowling ball, a “thing-a-ma-jig” and a diver, as well as a wash tub and a cage. The cage is to catch the mice, but first you must build it. As you whizz around the board, you build it piece by piece landing on the “build” spaces. (You also collect cheese pieces when you land on the cheesy spaces–all will become clear.)
When it has been built you then traverse the loop until you land on the “turn crank” space–this is when you get to have a go. If there is a mouse on the big cheese, you turn the crank; if there isn’t a mouse on the cheese, you can buy one with the cheese you collected on the way round the board.
Next, you turn the crank… that kicks the marble… that rolls down the chute… that moves the hand… that drops the ball in the tub… that flips the diver… into the pool… that triggers the cage… that catches the mouse GOTCHA! The last mouse left uncaptured wins. This game is fantastic family fun. —Ben King
