Pros: the mouse was cute
Cons: need an engineering degree to play this
This has to be one of the worst children's games ever.
The directions were so unclear we put it together first- thinking it needs to be assembled to play. Only to discover that we had to disassemble it to begin the game.
The interest was definitely lost after the first time we played, but tried it again later just to be sure we hated it.
What a dumb idea for a kids game...make them assemble it as you go along?
The point of the game is you assemble pieces to it as you go around the board and you try and trap other players. It ends up being like a giant Rube Goldberg game, with pulleys and things that causes other things to happen.
It is really too complicated. Way too many little pieces to lose. The plastic wasn't durable, so I constantly feared the cardboard would bend or a little plastic piece would snap and that would be it. That didn't get the chance to happen, because this ended up in next years garage sale. Save your money, buy any other board game.
