Great Winter Hunt 2011
The Great Winter Hunt 2011 started on 7 December 2011 when a massive comet traveling at 70 kilometres per second collided with Calamity Carl's Toy Factory at the Vacant Lot, causing festive explosion and snowy toy parts to be flung across the entire Kingdom.
In order to help Calamity Carl rebuild the lost toys, hunters had to gather toy parts from the festive mice, which could be attracted using Festive Feta Cheese. Loyalty Chests also included Festive Feta Cheese during the event. After a toy was built, hunters would be rewarded with Ice Coins and Toy Receipts, which enabled them to purchase hunting supplies at the various shoppes at the Festive Comet. Once hunters obtained 500 Toy Receipts, they achieved the title of Master Toy Maker and could claim a set of Nutcracker Trap Blueprints from the King.
Additionally, the King organized a Community Toy Drive, which required all hunters to collectively rebuild 1,000,000 wooden toys, 750,000 clockwork toys and 1,500,000 metal toys. On achieving the Toy Drive goal, the King held a Gift Opening Ceremony allowing hunters to open gifts under their profile trees and in team stockings. Calamity Carl, Larry and a secret admirer each gave every hunter 25 Ice Coins, 10 SUPER|brie+ and 1 Ronza Voucher respectively.
The event also introduced a second location, the Snow Fortress, on 20 December 2011. Hunters had to catch 120 mice in three areas using Festive Feta, including 3 Squeaker Claws mice at the end of each area, to collect the parts for Nutcracker Nuisance Trap and reach the Throne Room where the Mad Elf Mouse was hiding.
Meanwhile, Party Head Mouse and New Year's Mouse had stolen firecrackers from the Festive Comet Trapsmith. Hunters who had collected at least 100 Firecracker Charms and 600 Toy Receipts could buy the 2012 Big Boom Trap, a Limited Edition Tactical trap.
The event ended on 9 January 2011 when the Festive Comet and Snow Fortress melted completely. The Festive Shoppes remained open for a further three days to allow hunters to spend any/all Ice Coins they earned during the event.
Halloween at the Haunted Terrortories
The Halloween at the Haunted Terrortories event started on 19 October 2011 and ended on 3 November 2011. The Haunted Terrortories location reopened in the standard event space.

On 28 October 2011, the Bonus Team Hunt was introduced with the re-release of the Hunting Party feature.

Zombie Invasion Weekend
The Zombie Invasion Weekend started on 27 May 2011 and ended 30 May 2011. During the weekend, Undead Emmental Potions could be found as loot by hunting Zombie and Ravenous Zombie mice within the Mousoleum and Catacombs.
A second Zombie Invasion Weekend, starting on 8 July 2011 and ending 13 July 2011, introduced the Grave Robber Mouse to the Mousoleum and Catacombs. King's Credits were made available once again, by attracting and catching the Grave Robber and Zombot Unipire mice using Undead Emmental cheese.
- Trivia: Originally scheduled to end on 11 July, the event was extended due to a glitch that prevented Hunters from collecting, and storing in their Inventory, more than one Undead Emmental Potion at a time. The issue was resolved along with an explanation:
- Hey Hunters!
- It seems that some Zombie mice were guarding their stash of Undead Emmental Potions with more vigour than expected making them rather hard to come by during the first part of this ZOMBIE INVASION!
- Not wanting the invading undead mice to gain the upper-hand, the King promptly sent the always resourceful scientists of Digby to investigate. After careful study and experimentation the scientists found a spooky "bug" infestation at the Mousoluem and Catacombs. A generous splash of insect repellant quickly took care of the strange crypt-critters and now Zombie mice have once again started to drop Undead Emmental Potions at a greater frequency!
- The King knows hunters need as much practice as possible when it comes to hunting undead mice and is therefore instructing Larry to slow his own hunting efforts in order to allow the invasion to continue slightly longer than anticipated. The ZOMBIE INVASION is now anticipated to last until at least Wednesday, July 13th!
- Enjoy an extended opportunity to earn King's Credits!
