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.

The Spring Egg Hunt Begins!
09 April 2019
It's that time of the year again! The Spring Egg Hunt is back in town!
Hidden Spring Hunt Eggs
Mice throughout the Kingdom are carrying special eggs containing tasty treats of bonus loot! Travel throughout the Kingdom and hunt mice in search of these hidden eggs, then crack them open to see what's inside!
To get started, you'll need a special egg-finding piece of equipment called an Eggscavator. If you do not already own one, you can purchase one from the King for 10,000 gold from the special Spring Egg Hunt heads-up display. Or, you can track down the Eggscavator Mouse in areas throughout the Kingdom to find one for free.
Marshmallow Monterey Stockpiles and Spring Hunt Event Mice
The changing of the season has attracted several event mice to certain locations. These hunting spots are home to "stockpiles" of Marshmallow Monterey -- a special cheese that will lure event mice to your trap.
To collect Marshmallow Monterey, visit one of the stockpile locations (listed below) and hunt as you normally would there to collect Marshmallow Monterey as loot.
Marshmallow Monterey Stockpile Locations:
• Town of Gnawnia (Recruit) • Laboratory (Master) • Town of Digby (Master) • Great Gnarled Tree (Master) • Dojo (Grandmaster) • Catacombs (Legendary) • S.S. Huntington (Legendary) • Cape Clawed (Legendary) • King's Gauntlet (Hero) • Claw Shot City (Lord/Lady) • Muridae Market (Baron/Baroness) • Queso River (Count/Countess) • Gnawnia Rift (Count/Countess) • Fungal Cavern (Duke/Duchess) • Moussu Picchu (Grand Duke/Duchess)
Once you've obtained some Marshmallow Monterey, you can use it in any stockpile location to attract Spring Egg Hunt event mice! These mice can drop 10 especially valuable eggs that each hunter can loot only once. Event mice also drop special charms to boost the power of your Eggscavator!

Eggscavator Charge Charms and Eggstra Charms
You can obtain special charms to boost your Eggscavator by exchanging Marshmallow Monterey at the Charm Shoppe in any Stockpile location, or you can hunt for event mice in those locations to obtain charms as loot drops. Charging up your Eggscavator will allow you to find special Charge Eggs and using Eggstra Charms will double your egg drops! These special charms can also be purchased in the Premium Store.
Eggscavator Charge Charm
Capturing a mouse with this charm armed will add a charge to your Eggscavator. You'll lose a charge each hunt taken without a charge charm equipped. Depending on the charge level of your Eggscavator, you'll find Low, Medium, and High Charge Eggs that contain Spring Hunt loot!
The Eggstra Charm will double the quantity of any eggs found while hunting! The charm is only consumed when you find an egg.
Eggstra Charge Charm
This special charm combines the abilities of the Eggscavator Charge Charm and the Eggstra Charm both charging your Eggscavator and doubling the quantity of any eggs found! This charm is consumed upon each successful capture of a mouse.

The Eggsweeper Fields Have Opened
This year something new comes to the Spring Egg Hunt: The MouseHunt Eggsweeper Mini-Game! How Eggs-ilarating!
Eggsweeper is a brand new mini-game made in the spirit of Minesweeper. You have 10 eggs hidden somewhere in the field and you need to reveal them all to earn rank-specific rewards!
Each tile you reveal costs 1 Eggsweeper Shovel. When you reveal a tile, you will either be shown a number or an egg. The number shown is a clue representing how many eggs are hidden in nearby tiles (diagonals included). If you reveal an egg, you get a special Eggsweeper Egg added to your inventory based on your hunter rank.
Eggsweeper Egg Tiers by Title Range:
• Tier 1: Novice to Journeyman/Journeywoman • Tier 2: Master to Lord/Lady • Tier 3: Baron/Baronness and Count/Countess • Tier 4: Duke/Duchess and up
These eggs will contain loot appropriate for areas in the Kingdom tied to the hunter ranks.
You can find 10 Eggsweeper Shovels inside of this year's Golden Egg. You can also find them in your Daily Loyalty Chest or purchase them from the Premium Store.
Dig, dig, dig!
Spring Egg Hunt Supply Kits and Gift Baskets
Eggscavating and egg hunting is a lot of work! Here are this year's supplies, gift baskets, and kits to help you on your journey to Egg Master!
75 Marshmallow Monterey, 5 Eggstra Charms and 25 Eggscavator Charge Charms
50 Eggsweeper Shovels and 3 Magical Fertilizer
125 Marshmallow Monterey, 20 Eggstra Charge Charms, 15 Eggscavator Charge Charms, 5 Eggstra Charms, 150 Eggsweeper Shovels and 5 Eggsweeper Fertilizer
General Interface Changes
The Unfilled Spring Egg Carton has been retired and can no longer be filled with eggs. Due to this, we have temporarily frozen trade for it on the Marketplace. It can now be smashed with your Hunter's Hammer for 150 SB+.
In addition to the Spring Hunt release, we have also done some quality of life updates to sending supplies. You are now able to send and receive supplies to and from all hunters, regardless of friend status! There is a new setting in the Game Settings tab of the User Preferences page that will allow you to receive supplies from anyone. By default, this setting is disabled.
You may also notice some changes to how your "Special" inventory is organized. Some older event currencies and equipment have been moved to a new "Vintage" section, and others may have been shuffled around to more accurately organize your inventory.
