Gold is the currency of MouseHunt. It is earned by catching mice and, to a lesser extent, accepting rewards from the King. It can also be obtained through loot drops such as a Satchel of Gold or by returning surplus cheese, traps and crafting materials for a refund at the respective shops. All hunters also receive an hourly wage of 50 gold from the King.
Gold can be exchanged for traps, cheese, crafting materials, marketplace items, traveling, repairing maps at the Cartographer, and raffle tickets. When giving gold to another friend, the King charges a 10% tariff.
If the hunter has an extremely low amount of gold, the following message is displayed:
- You are stricken with poverty!
- The King pays all his active hunters a wage of 50 gold an hour, so fear not if you do not have enough to purchase bait.
