Oh, Mouse Trap! Which kid did not BEG for that board game from Santa in 1987? Jewish kids, that’s who, because they asked for it from Hanukkah Harry instead! Zing!
The best part about Mouse Trap, of course, is that you never ever played it, because it was too much work to set up. So instead you played Bed Bugs, as long as you had two “C” batteries!
Ah, mice and bed bugs. My two favorite things about living in New York City!
I got this for Christmas one year and after setting it up and playing with my sister (the only available person) she cheated and in my rage I shoved a pencil up her nose, having just studied mummification in school. The game was banned in my home after that.
It happens! Relatives who cheat are the worst. My great great grandfather would always tip over Boggle if it was a bad roll.
