How to play Catch the Mouse?
At the beginning of the round, Lightning has to hold his claw at least 20 cm above the mice (younger kittens can start closer). Lightning rolls the dice. Make sure that all the players can see the dice easily. If Lightning rolls the picture of the cat’s claw, he can strike like lightning in an attempt to catch the mice with his claw. Lightning scores a point for every mouse he catches.
If Lightning rolls the picture of the cheese mouse, nothing happens and the mice stay where they are. Lightning can tease the mice with the picture of the cheese mouse, pretending to strike. Should any of the mice attempt to flee, Lightning scores one point for each mouse that does.
But be careful: If Lightning rolls the picture of the cheese mouse, he may not touch or catch any of the mice with his cat’s claw. If he does, Lightning forfeits one point for each mouse he touches or catches.
Five rounds are played in this manner while keeping score. The player who is playing as Lightning then passes on his claw to the mouse belonging to the player on his left and another five rounds are played. This continues until all of the players have played as Lightning the cat.
