Every time I put the most lightweight mouse in the mouse in the mouse hole I get killed by a sand trap. What could I be doing wrong? Thanks

Hi NaughtySalem,

Double check that you're following the correct procedure for determining the lightest mouse.

MaG's walkthrough has a solution for both Amateur and Master levels. Here's the Amateur version:

Place 3 mice on each pan. Press the scale button on top to weigh. The bottom button is to reset the puzzle.

A. If they weigh the same, use the remaining 3: one on each pan and one in reserve. Check which is lighter.

If the scales are even, the one in reserve is the lightest.

B. If one is lighter, take off the heavier one and check the 3 mice that are lighter.

Use the remaining 3: one on each pan and one in reserve. Check which is lighter.

If the scales are even, the one in reserve is the lightest.

luck

That's what I dd. I checked MaG's walk through and Ive used the lightest mouse several times. Is the sand trap what happens if you're using the wrong mouse?

Yes, unfortunately. frown12

Here's another explanation from UHS Hints that might help:
