|The ancient ghost mice which roamed Gnawnia before even the castle existed require an old-fashioned trap strategy, and the Ancient Box Trap is about as old-fashioned as they come. A heavy stone box teeters precariously upon an Ancient Relic Staff, waiting for a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. This may seem like a deceptively simple trap set-up, but ancient mice enjoy the classics.|
The Ancient Box Trap is not sold by any Trapsmith. It can only be crafted using the proper components.

History and Trivia
- 2 September 2009: Before this date, a minimum of 19,000,000 points was required to craft the Ancient Box Trap. The point requirement was lowered to make the trap accessible to most hunters with the title of Knight.
- 8 June 2010: Prior the release of MouseHunt version 3.0, the description was:
- "A trap design that has long withstood the test of time. The parts of this trap emit a powerful glow capable of mesmerizing power-hungry, greedy mice. The heavy stone box teeters precariously upon the Ancient Relic Staff awaiting a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. It is only this simple, long-forgotten trap that is capable of defeating the powerful Acolyte mouse."
