Yes, it works. But let's compare that board game "Mouse Trap" where you build this elaborate mouse trap versus the standard 5-piece trap available at any hardware store. The one you make in the game "works" (so long as the mouse doesn't move for the 20 seconds it takes for the trap to finish doing its job), but sometimes something goes wrong and it doesn't work. The spring-trap at Home Depot works every time. Which trap would you want if you had a mouse problem?

Thanks for reminding me about this game. It occurs to me that Ben is about the right age to appreciate it.
