This many-storied tower is the King’s personal challenge to MouseHunters everywhere: anyone who can reach the top is among the kingdom’s elite. The King’s Gauntlet works on a tier system, with Hunters advancing to the next floor by hunting with cheese that they collect on the current floor. The Gauntlet is meant as a challenge for hunters of all skill levels, but in order to ascend to the very top, a Hero’s rank will come in handy.
Description and Requirements

Mice in this location are Gauntlet Gladiators with unique weaknesses. While their exact weaknesses are not known, mice of Tier 1 can be caught with any normal cheese, and are essentially never missed by even moderately powerful physical traps. Mice of Tier 2 are weak to physical traps; their vulnerability to other power types is unknown but it is reasonable to conclude that they resist most or all. Mice of Tier 3 are weak to tactical traps.
All standard cheese types can be used in this location. It is recommended that Hunters start out with either Marble or Swiss, and stay away from Brie as using this cheese will very likely result in a net gold loss.
Progress to more difficult levels of the King's Gauntlet requires the use of special cheese, acquired through the use of potions dropped as loot in this location.
Hunting tips by Larry
Why hello, Mousehunter! It looks like we’ll be ascending the King’s Gauntlet together!
Hunters have flocked in from all over the land to face the terrors, the wonders, and the challenges of the King’s Gauntlet. If you can make it to the top of this tall, tall tower, you will gain lots of loot, and you will be able to count yourself among the land’s elite.
Every Hunter starts on floor one, using any bait they wish. From then on, Hunters progress to the next floor by using potions collected on the previous floor to make special cheeses. There is no need to travel-- just equip the right cheese to move to the next floor!
On each floor, the mice are weak to a different power type. If you get confused, the cheese descriptions may lend a hand. The further you go up the Gauntlet, the more difficult, and profitable, the mice become. Can you make it all the way to the top, and defeat the mysterious Eclipse Mouse?
Good luck, MouseHunter, and don’t get tired on the stairs!
