Events in MouseHunt are special occasions when special event mice are released into the game. Some events have become annual celebrations, others are unique, but a fun time is had by all.
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!

The Great Winter Hunt '09
12 Days 'til Christmas
A new loot item was available at the Festive Comet each day between 12-23 December 2009, each dropped by two mice (except the 12th day when four breeds of mice dropped the loot).
Once hunters collected all 12 items from the 12 Days 'til Christmas event, they could exchange them with Larry for the limited edition trap the Christmas Cracker Trap. Alternatively, if they had not collected all 12 items or simply did not want a new trap they could exchange items for 10 SUPER|brie+ each. Twelve Liters of Egg Nog, however, was not able to be traded for SUPER|brie+; instead it remained in hunter's inventory after the hunter exchanged 12 items for the trap.
