Welcome to the MouseHunt Wiki, where users contribute their knowledge of the MouseHunt world for the benefit of the community.
MouseHunt is a popular game in which players, referred to as hunters, catch mice with a variety of traps and cheeses in order to earn experience points and virtual gold through passive gameplay. From time to time the developers add new locations and mice as well as sponsor thousands of dollars for periodic giveaways and tournaments. MouseHunt was developed by HitGrab Inc. as a Facebook application and released to a small group for beta testing in early 2008. On 7 March 2008, MouseHunt was officially released to the general public. Just nine months later, MouseHunt earned its creators a $250,000 development grant from Facebook and the game continues to grow in popularity.
This wiki exists to inform and to educate the community of MouseHunters and those who have an interest in the MouseHunt world and its intricacies.

Winter Games Celebration
9 February 2018
New mice at Lunar New Year locations!
Sporty Mice Appear at All Event Locations
A brief cold snap was felt throughout all Lunar New Year event locations as a wave of wintery, sporty mice suddenly appeared. It seems they're holding some sort of competition to see which of them can best outrun and avoid hunters' traps while trying to stay upright in all the snow and ice!
The various sporty event mice all carry with them some magical torches that can be used as hunting charms! Hunting with a Torch Charm will cause it to burn up and reveal a random item that will be added to your inventory.
It's worth noting that the arrival of these mice hasn't affected the population of the costumed Lunar New Year mice, so targeting those mice and collecting Lunar Candles won't be any more challenging due to the presence of these sporty mice.
The competition being held by the sporty event mice lasts just for the weekend, so get your Torch Charms while you can!
The sporty mice will leave on Monday, February 12.
Limited Time Premium Shop Items
To celebrate this new hunting challenge, the King has stocked the Premium Shop with a chilly looking trap skin for the Timesplit Dissonance Trap, as well as a supply of Torch Charms.
Grab these deals while you can, they'll disappear on Monday, February 12 when the sporty event mice leave.
- Winter Cup Dissonance Skin
- Skin the Infinite Labyrinth Trap
- Find bonus items
Sporty event mice leave on Monday, February 12.

Dog Lunar Lantern
Costumed Dog mice, along with other Lunar New Year mice, have appeared in 10 different hunting locations throughout the Kingdom! Find out where these event mice are by viewing the Lunar Banner above your Hunter's Journal on the Camp page and travel to capture them.
In each of the 10 Lunar New Year locations, you can collect special cheese to then lure the various costumed mice to your trap. The various costumed mice from previous years will come out of hiding in a specific order with the Costumed Dog Mouse being last. Capturing the Costumed Dog Mouse will reward the Dog Lunar Lantern, which can be used to double or even triple loot ANYWHERE in the Kingdom!
Double and Triple Loot
Once you've obtained the Dog Lunar Lantern, you can use it to boost loot drops ANYWHERE by igniting it which burns one candle per hunt. There are two types candles to choose from which determine whether you'll receive double or triple loot: Lunar Lantern Candles and Red Lunar Lantern Candles.
Each candle you burn will also raise your Dog Lunar Lantern upwards into the sky. As you reach certain height milestones, you'll find special rewards including a new event cheese and trap skin. Raising your lantern will also unlock luck bonuses while your lantern is lit, up to an amazing +50 Luck for raising your lantern to 500 feet!
