Elefun and Friends characters have come to join you as you play the hilarious and wacky Mouse Trap game. You and your friends will have a great time as you navigate the game board and meet up with your favorite faces from the Elefun and Friends world, such as Hungry Hippo, Cheeky Monkey, and Giraffalaff. You will also meet the Trap Pack in this laugh-out-loud, crazy game!
To begin the game, spin the spinner and scurry along the cheese path. When you land on the boot, you get to begin the activation by booting Elefun’s bucket. That will make the marble roll down the cheese wedge, across Gator’s back, and into your pal, Giraffalaff. Then Giraffalaff will knock her marble into the tub and onto Hungry Hippo’s log. Hungry Hippo will flip into the pond, causing Cheeky Monkey to twist down the tree and trap the mouse! Did you trap another player’s mouse? If so, you win! If not, reset and play again.
My Take on the Game
My kids love playing games and so do I! We love that we get to have special time together and we also love a little bit of competition too. I remember playing this game when I was a kid so I was excited to share it with my own kids too. The version of this game that I received is definitely geared toward kids. The mice as well as the characters shared on the game were colorful and larger than life and the game play was swift and we actually finished one round of the game in only one time around the board.
I noticed in playing this that reseting the board was much easier in this version than the original version that I played when I was a kid. I also found the game to be much quicker than the original too as there were far fewer spots on the board and with the ability to jump players and go double spaces you could easily move around the board quite quickly. Sometimes this would lead to a game that ended soon after starting and sometimes I found that the game still went on and on.
I also found that my daughters had a propensity for wanting to set off the trap even when there was no mouse around, they just thought it was so cool that they got to set up a trap using multiple methods (and I was happy that the trap, when sprung, always worked, which was not like the original game I remember).
All-in-all we had a blast playing this and so will your family! Bring some family game night fun into your own home, you will not regret it.
