How to play Mouse Trap? General rules

Players begin each turn by pulling the cheese machine’s lever. This will cause cheese to appear on specific spaces throughout the board.

The quantity and placement of the cheese vary according to the cheese machine’s result; for example, a green +3 result will place three pieces of cheese in all green spaces. Players have to move to the spaces with cheese to collect it.

The game ends when the machine runs out of cheese, and the player with the most cheese wins! In the case of a tie, the players who tie win.
