Mouse Island is a new game in which mice scurry across an island of tiles in a race to reach their cheese. The rules that come in the box are designed for young children, ages 5 and up. It's fun, easy to learn, and has really nice maple pieces. Lovers of strategy games should check out the "advanced version," which takes just a few moments to learn.
- 10 blocks with footprints
- 2 mice (1 black, 1 red)
- 2 slices of yellow cheese
This charming little game from the inventor of Octi will appeal to both young and old. Ten tiles, each with two squares, are set up to form a playing area (the island). At each end, a mouse sits atop a piece of cheese. Your object is to be the first either to get your mouse on the opposite cheese, or to immobilize your opponent's mouse. On the first part of your turn, you move your mouse to an adjacent empty square or to the cheese square. Then you take an empty tile, which may be repositioned or removed from the game. Whatever you do, the resulting tiles must remain completely connected. Rules for a more advanced game are available at www.octi.net/mouseisland.html. When the cat's away, with mice we'll play!
Mouse Island is a two-player strategy game for kids. Although it is designed by Don Green, the esteemed designer of Octi, Mouse Island is a surprisingly dreadful game. Don't bother with this one.
