Game of Cats and Mice

board game

Strategy games offered game makers some of the most creative themes in game design. In a strategy game, two forces generally battle against one another to reach a goal. In McLoughlin Brothers "Game of Cats and Mice" one player takes the part of the cat, and others take the part of the mice. The mice race home but the cat races to catch a mouse. The first to achieve their respective goal wins the game. Similar games pit armies against one another, policemen against robbers, and similar rivalries.
