Gather your cooperative players to chase after that mischievous little mouse who has stolen the cat’s bowl of treats. You need to surround the mouse before he escapes under the garden fence. A fun first strategy game to play as a team, Catch! has a colored dice for the mouse and number dice for the cats. The mouse moves first toward the fence of the color rolled while the cats can go in any direction but diagonal up to the number of spaces shown on the dice. Lots to think about and consider as you make your cat moves so it’s helpful to be part of a strategic team. Kids call out options and discuss plans for surrounding the mouse tapping negotiating and problem solving skills, building language learning.
