This celestial event of festive proportions has crashed into Gnawnia! Although the original origin of this cheer-spreading comet are unknown, hunters from across the Kingdom are calling its arrival cause for festive celebration!

Description and Requirements

The Festive Comet is a special location first available during The Great Winter Hunt '09 and currently during The Great Winter Hunt 2010. There are no special requirements for hunters to enter this area. Mice are unable to steal gold or points in this location but may steal cheese if not caught.

Catch statistics from the Festive Comet are grouped with those from the Heart of the Tiger Party under the King's Party Zone location name.

If a hunter was still in the Festive Comet when it melted, he was moved back to Gnawnia at no cost with the following message:

"As the last snowflake of the Festive Comet melted I moved to the Town of Gnawnia to continue hunting."


These are the shops that can be found in the Festive Comet:

During the Great Winter Hunt '09 there was no Trapsmith, Cheese Shoppe, or Cartographer at the Festive Comet. A gift shop known as the Festive Gift Shoppe was introduced along with this location.

Hunting Strategy

In this location, there are mice of four different power types (Hydro, Physical, Forgotten and Tactical). There are currently no traps that are effective against both Forgotten and Tactical mice, so the hunter needs to pick the trap with the power type of their most desired mice. Alternatively, hunters may consider using the luckiest trap available to them.

SUPER|brie+ and Gingerbread cheese are the only cheeses that are consistently effective in attracting all of the festive mice that are exclusive to this location, though SUPER|brie+ seems to be better in obtaining the Christmas Tree Mouse (see the main Christmas Tree Mouse article) and is essentially necessary to attract the Worker Mouse. The use of conventional cheeses such as Brie or Swiss does not attract the festive mice as much and eliminates altogether the attraction of several mice including the Scrooge, Christmas Tree, Troll, Hydra and Gargoyle. The overall attraction rate of regular cheese is rather low in this location, but the Abominable Snow Mouse is still attracted to your trap.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Festive Comet, MouseHunter!

This massive snowy comet smashed into Gnawnia resulting in an explosion of candy canes and snow! It's arrival in Gnawnia marks the beginning of the Great Winter Hunt!

Some pesky Elf mice have ran off with presents. If you catch an Elf mouse you'll find a gift specially wrapped depending on your Hunter's Title. Many of the gifts contain a little cheese to help you in your hunting, but occasionally you may just find something a little more special. To attract Elf mice more often, I suggest using SUPER|brie+ or Gingerbread Cheese as bait.

On November 29th is the Great Winter Star Ceremony. There's always a few mice that try and crash the party so make sure to check back and be ready to defend the Festive Comet!

Don't forget your mittens and toque! Happy holiday hunting!
