Throughout this site you'll find information normally discovered through gameplay. If you prefer to discover everything on your own, this site may affect your enjoyment of the game.
Welcome to the MouseHunt Wiki, where users contribute their knowledge of the MouseHunt world for the benefit of the community.

MouseHunt is a popular game in which players, referred to as hunters, catch mice with a variety of traps and cheeses to earn experience points and virtual gold through passive gameplay. From time to time the developers add new locations and mice as well as sponsor thousands of dollars for periodic giveaways and tournaments. MouseHunt was developed by HitGrab Inc. as a Facebook application and released to a small group for beta testing in early 2008. On 7 March 2008, MouseHunt was officially released to the general public. Just nine months later, MouseHunt earned its creators a $250,000 development grant from Facebook and the game continues to grow in popularity.

This wiki exists to inform and educate the community of MouseHunters and those who have an interest in the MouseHunt world and its intricacies.

Happy Lunar New Year

17 January 2023

Celebrate the new Year of the Rabbit and earn DOUBLE or TRIPLE loot!

Raise your Lantern to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit!

Year of the Rabbit


The Year of the Rabbit is upon us and it's time to kick off the new year with heaps of luck and loot! The Lunar Lantern has returned along with the lunar event mice at thirteen locations across Gnawnia!

Claim the Rabbit Lantern to collect and light Lunar Lantern Candles and join the celebration to earn double or triple loot anywhere in the Kingdom!

How to Celebrate

Stockpile Locations

Travel to any one of these stockpile locations. You can refer to the Lunar New Year Heads-Up Display to view this list along with a travel button to take you to a specific location immediately. This year we have added the Foreword Farm as a new stockpile location!

Town of Gnawnia Laboratory Great Gnarled Tree Dojo
S.S Huntington IV Claw Shot City Muridae Market Gnawnia Rift
Fungal Cavern Moussu Picchu Queso River Islands' Launch Pad
Foreword Farm
Claim the Rabbit Lunar Lantern!

Upon arrival at a stockpile location you can claim the Rabbit Lunar Lantern immediately via the event Heads-Up Display!

Gather Dumpling Cheese

At stockpile locations, you can gather Dumpling Cheese by hunting as you normally would in that location. The mice in stockpile locations have a chance of dropping Dumpling Cheese.

Gather Lantern Candles from Lunar Event Mice

Gather Lunar Lantern candles from any of the event mice while hunting with Dumpling Cheese at Stockpile Locations. If you hunt with Nian Gao'da cheese you will also find some of the coveted Red Lunar Lantern Candles!

This year, Nian Gao'da will exclusively attract event mice including the Lunar Red Candle Maker Mouse making it easier to get Red Lunar Lantern Candles!

Light the Candles and soar into prosperity!

With the Rabbit Lantern you claimed, you can begin lighting these candles and reaping their rewards!

When your lantern is lit with Lunar Lantern Candles, you will find DOUBLE loot from mice anywhere in the Kingdom! If you're lighting Red Lunar Lantern Candles you'll find TRIPLE loot!

The amazing power of the lantern and candles doesn't end there. While you hunt with your lantern lit, it will rise into the air in search of more rewards. Each hunt with a Lunar Lantern candle lit will raise your lantern by one foot and each hunt with a Red Lunar Lantern candle lit will raise it by two feet!

Every ten feet that your lantern ascends, you'll receive a +1 Luck bonus to your trap that will apply whenever the candles are burning. The bonus is cumulative so the higher you go, the more luck you'll get!

Every thirty feet that your lantern ascends, you'll receive an extra reward in addition to the +1 Luck! Be sure to check out the Heads-Up Display to get a glimpse of all the valuable items that await you along the reward track!

Lunar New Year Items

The various shops at stockpile locations now stock Lunar New Year themed items that can be purchased after the Lunar New Year adventure is completed. Keep an eye out for some unique and festive airship parts and trap skins!

The Lantern Lighter Scroll Case is also returning to cartographers at stockpile locations. Use it to speed up your candle collecting!

Celebration Supplies

The King has expanded his collection of offerings with a variety of bountiful bundles to help you raise your lantern to new heights!

All candles are sold in packs that can be given to friends or bought and sold on the Marketplace. Grab them now to kick-start your celebration!

The Lunar New Year event will end on January 31, 2023

As of January 31, you will no longer be able to collect Dumpling cheese or Lunar Lantern Candles at stockpile locations.

You will no longer be able to light any Lunar Lantern candles and therefore won't receive the Lantern luck bonus, loot bonus, or be able to make any more progress on the reward track.

You will still be able to claim any unclaimed track rewards and purchase Lunar New Year items at stockpile location shops until February 7.
