The translated rules in the German edition are pretty lame. It states that the cat only pounces when its color is rolled, which means there will be endless die rolling waiting for that 1 in 6 pounce. For a more exciting game we play pennies for points and use the following rules:

1. Discard the red die. There's no need for it unless there are only 2 players in which case the mouse represents the odd numbers.

1. The oldest player gets to be the cat first 3 times. After the 3rd pounce attempt, the cat role is switched to the player's left until everyone has played the cat.

2. Using the 6-colored die for 3 or more players (or the red die for 2 players) the cat pounces when the appropriate die color matches the color of the mouse. If the cat catches the mouse while it is still sleeping, the cat gets a penny. If the cat misses the mouse, the mouse gets the penny. If the cat prematurely pounces no one gets a point but the cat uses up 1 of its 3 lives!

3. You may hold the cup directly above the mice while you roll the die with the other hand. This will likely cause a lively situation no matter what happens especially if the cat "fakes" a pounce.

4. The game ends when all players have played the cat 3 times. Most pennies win!
