This treacherous environment only allows the toughest of mice to survive. Be warned: the Mountain is no place for the novice mouse hunter!

Description and Requirements

The Mountain is a location in the Gnawnia region requiring a minimum rank of Journeyman to enter. In the original release of MouseHunt on March 2008, it was the last location available to hunters. Mice in this location may steal points, gold, or multiple pieces of cheese if not captured.


There are no shops available in the Mountain. Shops for the Gnawnia region can be found in the Town of Gnawnia and Harbour. As such, hunters are advised to stock up on cheese before travelling here to avoid incurring unnecessary travelling costs.

History and Trivia

On 5 January 2010, they appeared in the Mountain for the first time.

Hunting Strategy

Hunters have several Trap Setup Options for the Mountain. Using a low power trap could result in a net loss due to the thieving mice.

Collecting enough gold to purchase either the Mouse DeathBot or NVMRC Forcefield Trap will also improve the chances of catching mice not only in the Mountain, but in most locations in the Burroughs region as well. Note, however, that the Swiss Army Mouse Trap paired together with the Stone Base or Explosive Base will do adequately there as well and will save you money for the future Shadow-based traps. Hunters will need to obtain the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece from a Ninja mouse and achieve Master rank before becoming eligible to travel to the Burroughs Region in the Kingdom of Gnawnia.

As the Abominable Snow Mouse, Frozen and Frosty Snow mouse can only be found in this location, hunters might want to stay in the location until they manage to capture one. Due to the rarity of the mouse however, it would be a good idea to use traps such as the Mouse DeathBot or stronger to reduce the possibility of failing to catch one. It is also recommended that hunters use cheese with higher attraction rate to improve the chances of catching one.

Cheese Usage

All standard cheese types can be used in this location. Hunters who wish to maximize their profits should use either Marble or Swiss. Alternatively, hunters can use Cheddar or White Cheddar and use a Base that has a high attraction bonus such as the Wooden Base with Target.

Hunters who wish to achieve Master rank quickly should use Brie or SUPER|brie+ cheese. These cheese have better attraction rates, thus hunters will encounter more Ninja mice overall and improve their chances of getting the Map Piece.

  • Hunters have reported that the first Ninja mouse encountered should hold the map hence hunters might not want to stay at the mountain for too long due to the fact that mice here is not fetching much gold.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the treacherous terrain of... The Mountain!

Hunting in the Mountain can be quite profitable. The Gold and Diamond mice found here are worth a handsome amount of gold and points! Extra income means that you may now be able to afford more expensive flavours of cheese and more powerful traps! If you're having problems attracting or catching mice, try heading back to town to buy new cheese or trap parts.

There have been reports of a mysterious Ninja mouse that has traveled to the Mountain from the North and is carrying a piece of the map. Should you find this rare Ninja and acquire the map piece, it will be added to your own map, unlocking a new hunting location in the north!
