Rated 1 out of 5 by J Bee Big dissapointment
I don't know who all these 'anonymous' reviewers were, but they certainly didn't buy the same mousetrap game that I did!
If you read reviews of this game on other sites, they all say pretty much the same thing, the traps simply don't work. The loop the loop trap, not once out of thirty times trying, would the ball jump over the gap. The other traps all have sticking points, the game is completely useless.
Even if the game did work, I would also say that my 6 and 4 yr old cannot play with it independently as the traps have to be reset each time and they are very fiddly and temperamental.
My two saw this on tv and it was bought as a very much wanted birthday present, massive dissapointment insued. Don't make the same mistake for Christmas, choose something else!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mum2om6lys3 bit fiddly
the game is easy enough to play and the kids seem to enjoy it, but the traps are a bit fiddly to set up and quite sensitive so they go off if you knock the board, so I seem to be forever setting up the traps and I don't think my 6 year old son would manage to do it by himself so wouldn't be able to play this game with his friends unattended :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 Not great
Unfortunately this took so long to set up, everyone had lost interest
before we started playing.
None of the traps seem to fit together very well, and the game
doesn't run smoothly.
The original was much better

The game takes so long to set-up and after the wait, the traps don't actually work. Especially the loop the loop, the ball also gets stuck. Very awkward to re-set traps each time they are set off.
I would not recommend to anyone, I also think the positive reviews on here must be fake!!

This game is not as good quality as the old style one I played with in the 80s/90s as a child.
It is very poorly made. It will not fit together properly so the ball will not roll through the obstacles at all and we are left with a game we can't play.
I'm not just unlucky as I have since read plenty of reviews on this game with exactly the same issues.
Sad really as it used to be a wonderful game to play.
