I lusted after Mouse Trap as a kid. Now I am not sure if I am in the minority of people when I say this, after all this game has been around forever and has sold millions of copies (guess), but as a game it is just not all that fun. It looks amazing and a Rube Goldberg style game is something that the world needs, but Mouse Trap works so much better as a toy that I am not sure why they have not abandoned the whole “game” pretense and made it into a sandbox-y type building system. Sell this as a building kit with addons and count me in Milton Bradley!
Now, even though I KNOW I do not enjoy this game that much, when I watch this commercial, I still want to break it out. I cannot fully explain that.
