Description
A fast and funny game of cat and mouse recalling a Victorian parlour game. Set the mice onto the playing board and ask the cat-player what time it is… if the cat shouts ‘one’ you must whip your mouse away by its tail before the cat’s trap comes down to stop you. Gain points for each escape. The nursery rhyme ‘Hickory, Dickory, Dock’ is first recorded in the 18th century and, legend has it, is based on a small doorway beneath Exeter Cathedrals’ 15th century astronomical clock which, it is said, was used to allow the cathedral’s cat to keep mice out of the clock’s mechanism.
