DescriptionOdyssey's game card #4 is used to play three games: Cat and Mouse, Football and Haunted House.
In Cat and Mouse, two players chase each other in a maze, taking turns. At any one time, one will play the Mouse who's objective is to reach his home, while the other player plays the Cat who tries to catch the Mouse before that happens.
Football is probably the first rendition of American Football on videogame form. With the assistance of deck cards (provided with the game) you choose the moves (Pass, Kick or Run) and play them out on screen. Passing and Kicking require game card #3 to be inserted.
In Haunted House, one player will act as detective while the other plays as ghost. The objective of the detective is to gather the most Clue cards and find the hidden treasure in the mansion, while the objective of the ghost is to slow the detective down.
