Alles Käse!

Take Care, there are traps!


Mice want cheese! But it’s difficult and nasty here, because instead of a cat the game holds traps nicely smelling of cheese, so take care! As a mouse you should collect most cheese holes, but there could be a trap under an enticing piece of valuable cheese!

The game comprises 36 cards which on the back side show dice pip symbols from 1 to 6, for cheese holes, each number is present six times. On the front of the cards you find 18 times cheese and 18 times a trap.

Cards are shuffled face down and stacked and then you lay out six of them so that the cheese holes are showing. You roll the die: When no card with the resulting number of holes is visible in the display you choose any card and look at the front side secretly and alone. But if there is a least one card showing the number of cheese holes corresponding to the dice result you can either keep the card or take it out of play. If you keep it you set it down open-faced; if you take it out of the game you set it aside unrevealed. In each case you replenish the display with a new card.

When any player turns up his third card showing a trap the game ends; this player has lost the game and cannot score his cards; all others add the number of cheese holes on their cards, trap cards are no longer relevant. When the stack of cards has been used up before this, the game also ends and all players count their cheese holes. You win with most cheese holes on your cards.

Well, this game is a bit like good cheese - solid conservative fare to served anytime, appropriate for all ages and occasions; generally easily to digest and very well suited for dessert after a games evening.
