Mouse Trap Game (nowadays called Mouse Trap) is a vintage board game first published by Ideal in 1963 for two or more players. Over the course of the game, players at first cooperate to build a working Rube Goldberg-like mouse trap (see: Rube Goldberg machine for more info). Once the mouse trap has been built, players turn against each other, attempting to trap opponents' mouse-shaped game pieces.
The original version, designed by Hank Kramer of Ideal Toy Company, allowed the players almost no decision-making, in keeping with other games for very young children such as Candyland, or Chutes and Ladders (Snakes and Ladders). In the 1970s, the board game surrounding the Mouse Trap was redesigned by Sid Sackson, adding the cheese pieces and allowing the player to maneuver opponents onto the trap space.
