Magical Winter Snow Golems have returned!

11 December 2018

Festive Comet makes a splash in Rodentia

A particularly icy Festive Comet has crashed into the Rodentia Ocean, obliterating the S.S. Huntington III! Fortunately, the King's Royal Astronomers observed that the comet was off-course and would land in the ocean instead of its usual landing spot near the castle. This allowed the King's Royal Engineers to construct a replacement ship ahead of time with the ample supply of Splintered Wood in the King's Royal Sawmill. You can find the new and improved S.S. Huntington IV just north of its previous location.

However, the trouble didn't end with just the destruction of a beloved ship... A troublesome sculptor mouse has setup base within the icy wreckage and has begun to sculpt animated icebergs to send on a collision course with Gnawnia!

Hunters are tasked with journeying to the icy seas of Rodentia to confront the Iceberg Sculptor Mouse and prevent the demise of the Kingdom.

Destroying Animated Icebergs

The Iceberg Sculptor Mouse's plan of attack involves 10 increasingly larger icebergs, sculpted into festive shapes. To destroy the icebergs, you'll need to send out magical Snow Golems to safely collect Explosive Christmas Crackers. Each iceberg sculpture is larger than the last, requiring more crackers to explode.

The 10th iceberg in the sculptor's fleet is a fortified art studio where the sculptor himself is hiding. Blast the walls of this icy fortress to confront the Iceberg Sculptor Mouse and seize the Iceberg Sculptor's Pick!

Each pick you recover from the Iceberg Sculptor Mouse can be used to chisel open one of four frozen boxes of decorations which can be used to decorate your Golem Generator HUD. While decorated, your generators will attract different breeds of festive mice carrying a variety of sugar cookies.

Collect plenty of each sugar cookie and browse the various festive shoppes at the Festive Comet where the shopkeepers are willing to indulge their sweet tooth and exchange various equipment for your delicious cookies.

Constructing Snow Golems

Once constructed, Snow Golems can be sent to any hunting location you've unlocked and meet the title requirement for. Your golems will collect different loot depending on where they're sent. Additionally, golems will always return with Explosive Christmas Crackers.

Pecan Pecorino Cheese

Possibly the cutest cheese ever molded, this nutty fromage will lure mice carrying various golem parts to your trap. Hunt using any standard type of cheese at the festive comet to collect some, with SUPER|brie+ attracting mice which drop the most.

Glazed Pecan Pecorino Cheese

An extra sweet version of Pecan Pecorino that can attract the Glazy Mouse and Joy Mouse. The Glazy Mouse always drops a golem part and the Joy Mouse carries a stash of Sugar Cookies.

Let It Snow Charm

Push your golem part collection to the extreme by equiping a Let It Snow Charm which can attract the Snow Golem Architect Mouse. The architect always drops 2 limbs and occasionally also drops torsos and heads!

Festive Summoning Bells

Have too many of a specific type of golem part? Use the recycler on the heads-up display to smash parts into Animated Snow which you can then use to create a different type of part. You can also use Animated Snow to purchase a Festive Summoning Bell that will instantly call your golem back with its entire load of loot!


Defeating the Iceberg Sculptor Mouse will recover a pick which can be used to break the ice off crates of decorations in the heads-up display to decorate your golem generators.

Depending on which decoration you have active, different mice will visit your trap. These mice carry one of four sugar cookies which you can use to purchase a number of festive rewards from the Trapsmith, General Store, and other shoppes.

Golem Guardian Trap (Limited Edition)

Adventure Reward This very unique trap can put the power of golems to use year-round. Depending on which skin the trap has equipped, the guardian trap will take on a different Power Type and begin constructing a formidable snow golem warrior to hunt mice.

Each hunt you take with the trap will increase its charge and as a result increase its Power, Luck, Power Bonus, and Attraction Bonus. Once fully charged, a unique golem will emerge from the trap signalling it has reached full strength!

Only one skin for the Golem Guardian Trap can be fully charged at a time. Upon changing the skin, each hunt taken with the Golem Guardian Trap will reduce the charge of all other skins which hold any charge while increasing the charge of the currently active skin. Charge levels will only increase or decrease while hunting and swapping skins will not reset charge.

Each skin provides different maximum stats and it takes 500 hunts to fully charge a skin.

Golem Guardian Hydro Skin (Limited Edition)

Adventure Reward Maximum Stats: 10,000 Power and +28 Luck

Golem Guardian Arcane Skin (Limited Edition)

Available from the Trapsmith Maximum Stats: 6,000 Power and +28 Luck

Golem Guardian Tactical Skin (Limited Edition)

Available from the Trapsmith Maximum Stats: 5,000 Power and +30 Luck

Golem Guardian Forgotten Skin (Limited Edition)

Available from the Trapsmith Maximum Stats: 7,000 Power and +15 Luck

Snowball Showdown

Upon reaching level 4, your golems will return with Throwable Snowballs you can use to play the Snowball Showdown and win various prizes. This year, hunters can play an upgraded version of the Snowball Showdown by using Snowball Showdown Dust at the start of a game.

Playing an upgraded board gives a greater quantity of rewards and some rewards are also upgraded! You'll receive Glazed Pecan Pecorino instead of regular pecorino for finding the large gift, Let It Snow Charms instead of Winter Charms for finding the Candy Cane, and Super Snowball Charms instead of Snowball Charms for finding the new Festive Wreath.

Perhaps best of all, playing an upgraded board will always include a new Magical Hat shape that's exlusive to upgraded boards and rewards a Magical Winter Hunt Holiday Hat each time!

As a final bonus, an upgraded board rewards 50 SUPER|brie+ instead of five.

  • Snowball Showdown Dust
Better rewards!
  • 50 Throwable Snowballs

Leave Presents Under Friends' Profile Trees

Visit any friend's profile to leave a wrapped gift under their tree! Your friends will be able to open gifts once the Grand Gift Opening Ceremony takes place on Thursday, December 20.

Note that once the Grand Gift Opening Ceremony takes place you'll no longer be able to leave friends gifts. So, if you're planning on putting something under their tree make sure to do so before December 20 arrives.

One final note for hunters on teams: Stockings no longer appear on your team profile page. Instead, teammates are able to leave gifts under each others' profile trees, even if they're not on each others' friends lists.

Grand Gift Opening Ceremony

20 December 2018

King's Grand Gift Opening Ceremony

With a wave of a royal sceptre the King has completed an elaborate gift opening ceremony signaling that hunters may now open gifts left under the hunter profile trees.

Check your profile by clicking either "My Profile" or the MouseHunt shield at the top left of the game. Any gifts left under your tree by other hunters will all be opened!

Note: With the gift ceremony complete, you may no longer leave gifts under other hunters' trees. However, as always, you can use the send supplies page to send items to friends. The cork board on friends' profiles also makes a great place to say thanks or leave some holiday best wishes.

A final reminder: The Great Winter Hunt will come to an end on Tuesday, January 8. Make sure to keep track of what sugar cookies you're collecting and check out all the rewards that the various shoppes at the Festive Comet have to offer!

Happy holiday hunting!

New Year's Winter Hunt Decorations

27 December 2018

A New Year's celebration has broken out at the Festive Comet!

New Year's Celebration

The clear night skies above the icy waters of Rodentia make a particularly nice backdrop for festive fireworks! A full fledged party on the high seas has broken out with hunters and golems alike invited!

Hunters can now send their Snow Golems to the Festive Comet itself where they'll recover event supplies and rewards including Pecan Pecorino, Snowball Charms, Throwable Snowballs, Winter Charms, and 2019 Charms. If you send your golem with a Magical Hat they'll have a chance to recover even better rewards including Glazed Pecan Pecorino, Let It Snow Charms, SUPER|brie+, and the various varieties of festive ultimate-tier charms.

The Iceberg Sculptor Mouse is holding up the party by withholding some seriously cool looking New Year's decorations. Your next capture of the Iceberg Sculptor Mouse will recover these decorations, allowing you to decorate your Golem Generators with a splendid looking Happy New Year banner. While your New Year's decorations are hung, the New Year's Mouse, Party Head Mouse, and Frightened Fireworks Mouse can be attracted, all of which have a chance to drop Firework Sugar Cookies.

Visit the Trapsmith, General Store, and Charm Shoppe at the Festive Comet where new rewards await:

2019 Lucky Codex

A sparkling codex celebrating the good luck and fortune that's sure to come with 2019! With this codex in your inventory your trap will receive a +1 Luck Bonus until the end of 2019.

2019 Base

A bright and colourful base to celebrate the new year! Its +10 Luck will help you catch mice and its special ability to occasionally recover 2019 Charms from mice will also prove useful. This base's loot effect will last until the end of 2019.

2019 Charms

A powerful charm with 2,019 power to celebrate the new year! You can exchange any excess Firework Sugar Cookies at the Charm Shoppe for one charm each.

The Great Winter Hunt ends on Tuesday, January 8, 2019.
