Much better than the original,
This review is from: Mousetrap (Toy)Having played the original mousetrap and been really frustrated with the hit and miss nature of the trap, I was sceptical when we got this new version, but I was wrong. Initial set up takes a while, but by building the traps before you play there isn't the boring bit that you used to have of making the trap as you went along. Game play is quick, and enough of the spaces give you something to do to prevent games becoming boring.
A big plus is that the whole thing is just more sturdy - the traps are either made from from substantial cardboard or plastic - and THEY WORK! (well 95% of the time).
Overall I was very pleasantly suprised and would recommend it - even to those who like me did not think much of the original.
