Student mice

Hi! It's a known fact that SB+ and Maki both increase the encounter rate for Students... It seems that the articles were recently reworded to use the word "attracted" instead, which I will agree is rather misleading. If you can think of a better way to put it, please do. -- Camomiletea 00:59, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Where does one find evidence of increased encounter rates? I'd be curious to read that- sounds like an old wive's tale to me. You get more students with SB+, yes- you get more of EVERY mouse with SB+. There's nothing special about students in that regard.--Kirbix 01:25, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

It was confirmed by the devs [1]. -- Camomiletea 03:17, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Further information from developers available in an archived discussion here: -- Grexx 04:59, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Well I'll be darned. Not sure what the point of maki is, then... but whatever. It's their game. Although is it possible that maki has replaced SB+ in this purpose? I mean, that post is awfully old... --Kirbix 12:13, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
In a sense you could call Maki a replacement meant specially for the Dojo Students, since the conversion rate is at 1:1, SB+ to Maki. SB+ is a poorer choice since it is improbable that it boosts the encounter rate of students as much as, or more than Maki.
As for being outdated, that is also unlikely as the developers have no reason to lower the encounter rate of SB+ if it works fine. Maki is probably an added "flavour" to the game, providing alternate paths to certain game goals. So now players have 3 paths to take in the Dojo, using standard cheese for normal encounter/attraction rates, using SB+ for 99% attraction rate and increased encounter rate for students & prize mice, or using Maki for even higher encounter rate for students and possibly 90%-95%(estimated) attraction rate, but without the increased prize mice encounter rate. -- Grexx 16:50, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

The Guide

I don't know if there's been any issues with people posting illegal links on the wiki since I pulled it down, but now the real one is back up! For good, I suppose. Can't very well pull it down again without being a total jerk.--Kirbix 14:38, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


The Record page has just been created and there have not been many recent updates.--Tmm stinson 16:13, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
