MouseHunt is a passive game that is meant as something fun to check every 15 minutes while surfing the web, browsing profiles or doing some work. MouseHunt is not a ’sit and watch‘ type of game, but rather a ’come back and check your progress later‘ game.
The scoreboard allows you to check your progress against other players of the game.
How to use
The scoreboard is displayed when selecting it from a drop down list after you press the "Lore" button located on top banner on the right side.
If you are interested in seeing everyone's score, select the All Players tab. You can get back to seeing your friend's score, by selecting the Friends tab.
You can search for other player's scores by entering their name in the search text box and selecting the Search Friends or Search Players button.
In the past, you could view your own scoreboard rank, both by Points and Gold by navigating to the Hunting Group Page, find your own name and click on the Green Arrows next to your Points/Gold. You may also "Seek" other players in your Hunting Group in this manner. However, this function has been removed since the Longtail update.
- Rank – This is the player's position compared to other players. The lower the number, the higher the rank in the realm of MouseHunt.
- Shield – To the left of the name an icon represents the Hunter's Title.
- Name – This is the profile name of the player. Clicking on the name will display their Hunter's Profile.
- Points – This is the default criterion for determining rank. Each mouse caught is worth a specific number of points.
- Gold – By selecting the Gold link, the scoreboard will rank players by the amount of gold they are carrying.
- Mice – By selecting the Mice link, the scoreboard will rank players by the number of mice caught. A player could move up this ranking by trying to catch mice that are easier to catch even if they are worth less points.
Chasing a higher position on the scoreboard can add another dimension to the MouseHunt game. Some players set a goal to be one of the Top X players, where X is some reasonable number, and after achieving that goal, they set a new goal with a lower number. Other players use the scoreboard to having bragging rights among their circle of friends on who is the best mouse hunter.
