oh that Biff, he’s so silly.
Hahah, this is so cute.
i like this one
Wow, that brings back memory’s of when I was 4.
I have tried this, and it does not work. Milton Bradley lied to me!
well of course it didn’t work. the mice aren’t gonna step into the trap if you sit there watching it. they’re skittish and shy creatures.
I like the way he’s laying there staring at it.
Lol, I used to play that game…
Congratulations on hitting #150!
Thank you kitsy!
O_o never actualy PLAYED the game, i was to enthralled with the mechinations of the thing to WAIT long enough to get to the end to set the thing off, altho when we DID try this ONE TIME. we’d always set off the damn bucket and roll the marble down the path, skip a few turns, and end up at the bottom, and roll up to the stick with the hand that pushes the tub up. problem was, it’d never tip the tub, it would just stop at the stick with the hand on it, and we’d set it off manualy BY ACCIDENT trying to get the marble back in the bucket, which would drop the unnesesesesarily heavy ball into the green man which would TRY and trip the already trupped cage. which had hit the bottom of the ridged stem from when we accidentally set the bucket off in the first place D8
God, I miss that game, I remember whenever we went to someone’s house we would play that without end…buuuuut it got caught in a HURRICANE of all things.
I was never patient enough to play the game… I just put it together and set it off a few times.
Yeah, I mostly just set it up and set it off myself.
I think we need more Rube Goldbergian inspired games.
hehe I remember when my mother start refuseing to set the thing up for me because I wouldnt wait to play the game either before setting it off.
how do you put it together?
that is awesome.
Isn’t the diving man the wrong way?
Nah, the guy has to be facing the wrong way or he doesn’t go in the tub properly.
Wait a minute… where’s the bucket the boot is supposed to kick over? Go from the crank at the beginning, and you’ll see the boot, but no bucket with marble. It won’t work without that bucket!
Yeah, there’s Biff’s problem! I loved this game, would set it up just to set it off, out of sheer boredom.
He’s so cute in this comic.
Ey, what happened to my copy of the boardgame…? I had one, didn’t I? o.O *remembers having a few missing pieces…*
I remember this. Everyone else was always so bored that I could cheat and win while they weren’t looking. No one ever suspected anything, either. ;D
this one made laugh. i could never set up board games like these… did biff get his pre-made?
After seeing a few ads, I decided to check this out. These 1-Panel Comics are awesome. I wonder if I can read them all in one sitting…
This is the first to make me laugh out loud so far; something that I don’t do too often. ^_^
I had this game back in the day, but my box didn’t include the see-saw the man dives into. Do you have any idea how important that piece is to actually play that game?!?!??!!
Oh man, good times, good times. My friend had that at her house a decade ago, as well as a bunch of other board games, and it was a great way to kill time while waiting for my parents to pick me up. I remember sticking my head under cage and telling her to set it off. Instead, she just dropped the little ball on my eye. That part sucked, but the rest was fun.
Ben, I think Biff must have gotten it pre-made, otherwise it would probably destroy the earth again.
the dog on that game was so goddam scary!
The accuracy of this one is what impresses me.
I agree with zeke, must’ve taken a while to draw, especially with how amazingly it resembles the actual game.
I caught myself in it.
I caught everything but the mouse in that thing.
Ummm… I loved the game but my family isn’t big into board games except for Risk and Chess. I can’t play go with them and we lost this game after playing it only once. Alas, the trap is soo fun and I loved how intricate it was…
That game takes too long to set up.
I finally figured it out. Biff is legally retarded with the I.Q. and logic skills of a four year old, isn’t he?
That’s so silly. Lol.
i love the detail and accuracy in the game
friggin rube goldberg machines, the damn thing makes too much noise in the first action so the mice would just run away anyways.
but he is also a complete genius….he is such a mystery…
I loved this game…
Geez… this brings back memories. XD
Of course he can’t catch any mice with it.
He forgot the cheese!
It’s a theme park for mice!
I just finished reading these first 150 comics, and I have loved them all! And I just noticed there is over 500 of these!?!? Well, I guess I should go to sleep and read the next 150 when I wake up…
Never buy this game at a car boot sale or somesuch thing. There will always be a vital part of the mechanism missing.
I never played that….
I have no childhood…. V.V
guys, this one actually follows an episode of corner gas (a good canadian tv show) where theyre trying to rid the gas station of mice… on uses “the most expensive mouse trap on the market, and the other uses a simple wooden box… made me giggle that i was watching that and this popped up at the same time
I always wanted to play that game and now ive discovered i’m the only person in the world who hasn’t
I never got to play… We bought it once. But the finger broke.
OF COURSE THAT WONT WORK, BIFF!
You’ve set it up wrong!
…I wanted that…
got the crappy new version…
The best part in the newer version is… toilet tower.
rube goldbergs mousetrap.
