“Mousetrap A Game of Cheese”

published 06/08/2014

ProOK

ConsOK

Mousetrap Mousetrap is a board game with a difference and it is one of those classic games that has been around for a long time. I remember playing it at friends houses as a child and my own daughter had a version as a child. Now it is the turn of her children to play this game. ~ The Game...

“Mousetrap”

published 24/05/2001

ProFun for the whole damn family

ConsYes

Mousetrap- the nearest thing to a adventure for many children. One of the few games that you can actually see work, this is a great favourite for kids. Mousetrap is a board game in which you roll a dice then move accordingly- making it a game of luck and playable by adults and kids at the same...

Not for me

ProNone

ConsBOOOOORING

Mousetrap Now, everybody loves Mousetrap, right? The kids' game which is all about building a fairly convoluted and complicated trap to catch a mouse. Of course. However, it's another thing whether anyone has even the slightest idea what the bloody rules or object of the game are. We're all so...

Profun

Conslose bits

Going through a spat of childhood memories with my games reviews, and which other game holds so many memories than Mousetrap? You take the part of a mouse, working your way around the board, trying to evade capture from the elaborate mouse trap. Should you set it off, the whole thing sets off a...

“Fine until I fell on it!”

published 11/09/2000

ProInteresting to start with

Consbut not for long

Quite an interesting game this one, you set up this Roller Coaster-like plastic framework with all sorts of mechanisms in it, then try to get your mouse around the board with dice and luck and a tiny bit of skill without setting a ball rolling which works its way around this framework and sets of...

Satisfactory

Proerm????????????????????

ConsNo point to it at all. Hard to set up.

As a small child I didn't have MOUSETRAP. I suspect neither did the person who bought it for my 5 year this christmas! When the christmas parcel was unwrapped i was sooooooooo excited,My daughter on the other hand was in the "next" mode waiting for another parcel. I couldn't wait until the...

ProMechanical discovery, noise, competition

ConsBreakages, can be time consuming to actually win

I wasn't allowed this toy when I was a kid. I'm now in my early 20's and recently played this game for the first time with some friends from uni. Whilst I'm not sure if it would appeal to the kids of today who don't really seem to enjoy anything unless it has a chip in it or it's got it's very...

Excellent

ProIt is entertaining for the whole family to play

ConsIt can be a bit fiddly

I have had my Mousetrap games for so long I cannot really remember where or when I bought it but it rarely gets played much nowadays. My granddaughter used to enjoy playing with this lovely game when she stayed over at my house but I think she has outgrown it now because she rarely asks to get it...

“What a pain”

published 28/09/2000

Consvery fiddly

My kids were given this game by their Aunt, to whom I would like to say a huge thankyou, and ask if she wants to supply the hundreds of elastic bands that they keep breaking and asking for replacements! They love it, it keeps them quiet for hours, when they can stop arguing about who is going to...

“A Trip Down Memory Lane”

published 03/03/2001

ProKeeps the kids quiet

ConsMight have to actually play the thing

Mousetrap saw me through a lot of wet afternoons when I was a kid; not because we played it, it just took so damn long to set up that it was an ideal timebuster!! The game itself is straightforward; move your mouse round the board and over the obstacles, usual boardgame stuff! I just remember...

ProA lot of fun for all ages

ConsOne trap not going off properly

I knew before i bought it that this mousetrap was different to what it used to be so i wasn't suprised there! I like the new things in the game like the flushing of the toilet! The kids found that hilarious! The first time you put it together it takes a fair while but after the first time it can...

ProThe mousetrap itself is quite good fun

ConsBoardgame aspect dull

Has anyone under the age of 18 ever played a proper game of mousetrap? From my experience, all kids want to do is set up the mousetrap - and play with that, forgetting the boardgame aspect! The idea of this game is to move around a board, and at certain points inserting parts of a complex...

“from the 'horses mouth'”

Procan be fun

Consawkward to set up sometimes

My children like playing mousetrap but I have found that it can be a bit of a 'pain'. They find it tricky to set up some of the pieces and this causes arguments and thus me getting stressed! There is a bit that is spring loaded and I have found this part awkward and I am an adult. Some of the...
