Catching Real Mice with the Mouse Trap Board Game

Shawn Woods has a YouTube channel dedicated to testing different kinds of mouse traps. It’s pretty entertaining stuff. His latest video might just be the weirdest one yet, or the coolest depending on your point of view. He used the Rube Goldbergesque “Mouse Trap” board game to capture an actual mouse. Impractical? Sure. But a very fun way to catch rodents. How many kids have dreamed of this through the years? Now, one man has done it.

Don’t worry, no mice were hurt in this experiment. In fact the little critter got a treat for participating. The first trap is used to pull the crank which gets the board game started when the mouse steps on the pad The game goes through its little routine as metal balls roll down tracks, etc., and eventually the second real mousetrap is triggered.

The whole thing works pretty flawlessly. So if you ever need to catch a mouse and all you have is this board game, now you know what to do. I seriously doubt you’ll ever find yourself in that situation, but you never know. Always be prepared, that’s what I say.
