“Dear Mice and Meeces of Tockton Clock,
Wax your whiskers and straighten your tails, for you are hearby invited to the Royal Scavenger Hunt! Gather your team and hop and shove your way to glory! BUT, mind your scavenger hunt card, for these items may be worth extra prizes once the clock strikes midnight! We will also have a chain climbing race for the little ones.
The event begins at 7 p.m. SHARP. Dress is smart casual. A meal of sweet berries will be served for each item delivered.”
In Hickory Dickory, you will play as a team of mice competing to collect tiles, climb the cuckoo clock weights, find royal relics and complete quests to gain the favor of the all-powerful Lord Cuckoo and ultimately win a feast of berries in your honor!
Players will do this by having their mice ride around the clock on the minute hand as it ticks from space to space. On each space the mice on the hand will get the chance to hop off the tip of the minute hand and take that space’s designated ACTION while collecting revealed item tokens from that space.
The mice who were already patiently waiting on that space will get the chance to either stay where they are and take that space’s action, or hop onto the rear of the minute hand before it ticks forward once more.
But be careful! If a mouse hops on to the hand, and there isn’t room for more mice, the mouse on the front of the hand will be bumped off, forcing them to take an action they may not have wanted.
