MouseHunt's Fourth Birthday!

29 February 2012

Birthday Party Celebration!


It feels like just yesterday, MouseHunt was a young application on Facebook. It's been an amazing four years, and we couldn't have done it without the awesome support and dedication of our players, the MouseHunters.

For this birthday, the King had a GRANDIOSE birthday cake prepared for all of the hunters. But with all that sugar in one place... The excited little mice just couldn't help themselves, and we don't blame them!

Head to the Birthday Party Celebration area in Gnawnia, help us re-build that cake, and celebrate MouseHunt's Fourth Birthday with us!

Our Gift to You

MouseHunt officially turns four years old on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012. Remember to join us on that day for a special treat! The celebrations will end on Friday, March 9th, 2012.

Build a Cake, Save a Birthday


Head on over to the Birthday Party Celebration area and hunt down the mice that have run off with necessary birthday cake ingredients. You'll need to find 15 Blobs of Cake Batter, 15 Dollops of Icing, 4 Birthday Cake Candles, and 4 Sparks of Candle Flame, in that order, to complete the MouseHunt Birthday Cake.

Party Charms

All of the mice at the Birthday Party Celebration area are celebrating, and most have Party Charms on them! Find these charms and equip them to gain a small power and luck bonus, and to better attract mice carrying birthday cake ingredients!

Nanny Charms

In order to bring out some of the more troublesome mice, the final phase of cake-building will need an extra fiery feature. Hunt any mice in the Birthday Party Celebration area during the final build step in order to obtain Nanny Charms, then equip them to finish off the cake!

Dinosuit Mice

Some of the mice have put on party hats for this birthday celebration. These little mice, however, have gone the extra mile and dressed up as their favourite animal: the dinosaur. They want to be dinosaurs when they grow up, and we just don't have the heart to tell them otherwise. Be wary of these little troublemakers; dinosaurs have voracious appetites, and mice love sugar. Put it all together and your cake won't be safe for long once it's fully built!

Bonus Attractions

Carrot Birthday Cake Base

That cake you built sure looks tasty, doesn't it? I bet the mice would like a slice, too! Build the MouseHunt Birthday Cake and you'll be able to sneak a small slice to use as a new celebratory base for your trap.

Also, be sure to visit the Trapsmith to find birthday cake bases from previous birthdays!

Birthday Party Piñata Bonanza

This one-of-a-kind trap was drawn live and created entirely by suggestions from hunters, and will be available only during MouseHunt's Fourth Birthday event. The Trapsmith will require concrete proof of your Mandatory Birthday Party Participation, so get to making that cake!

Elven Princess Mouse

Four-year-olds love dinosaurs, of course. But they also love princesses, and the Elven Princess Mouse just couldn't stay away from a birthday party. Catch her and maybe you can convince her to hand over the Tiara she had made especially for this event!

Magic Mouse

What birthday party would be complete without a magician? The Magic Mouse — attracted to the idea of obtaining more SUPER|brie+ — has kindly offered up his services for the birthday party. In addition to a pile of tricks and toys, he also carries birthday cake ingredients and Party Charms. Catch him for a real boost to your celebrations!

Party Giftbox and Party-in-a-Box

Party Giftbox

This giftbox is filled with fun goodies to celebrate MouseHunt's Fourth Birthday! Inside you'll find 100 SUPER|brie+ and 20 Party Charms. It also provides the Lucky Golden Shield for 1 month when opened. Buy one and give it to a friend!


Due to a shipping mishap the King has demanded a 10% discount on the new Party-in-a-Box. It appears 450 SUPER|brie+, 75 Party Charms and the Lucky Golden Shield made the container a bit too heavy to lift safely and they all seem to have received a Dent along the way. All items inside are guaranteed to be in perfect working condition but the pretty box is a bit scuffed.

Year of the Dragon Festival Ends Gloriously!

07 February 2012

The Year of the Dragon Festival Ends Gloriously!

It has truly been a grand celebration. The sky was lit up like never before, and the King was delighted to have seen so many hunters gathered to celebrate this Lunar New Year. It was also a treat to see the costumed mice celebrating with us, even if they caused quite a bit of trouble...

Hunters who still have Firecracker, Nitropop, or Dragon Breath charms can use them in their regular, everyday hunting for a boost to their trap's power!

On behalf of the King, we'd like to thank all hunters that participated, and we hope you had a wonderful Lunar New Year!

Ronza's Ship Weighed Down with Gold

03 February 2012

It appears that Ronza's airship has become too heavy to lift off! Although she has unloaded most of her stock, Gnawnian gold is unusually heavy! Over the last four days, hunters have spent more than 200 billion gold on Ronza's wares, making her ship extremely heavy!

Ronza has employed the help of the Scientists of Digby to retro-fit her airship with stronger propellers and a new type of gas to fill her blimp. These upgrades will provide the necessary vertical lift to make it off the ground.

The Scientists of Digby have indicated that they will be finished the airship modifications by Sunday, February 5th, 5pm (GMT).

This will be a hunter's absolute last chance to buy her wares, so make sure to visit her shoppe before she leaves on Sunday!
