The Stuck Snowball Mouse is a breed of mouse found during the annual Great Winter Hunt event. It is known to drop Great Winter Hunt event-related loot, and was the first mouse to have progressively larger loot the more times it is caught.

This slick little guy has slipped and got himself stuck in snow! What's worse? He can't stop! Rolling and gaining momentum throughout the snowy hills, not one trap has yet been fast enough to catch and stop this sailing snowball!

How big will he get? Will he ever be stopped?
Mouse ID#:



* Each catch of a Stuck Snowball Mouse increases the points awarded by 500, and the gold awarded by 350 (the second catch is 2,500 points and 1,000 gold, the third catch is 3,000 points and 1,350 gold, and so on).

Preferred Cheese

The Stuck Snowball Mouse has been found to be especially attracted to Arctic Asiago Cheese, but has a lesser attraction to Standard Cheese, Gingerbread, Festive Feta, Seasoned Gouda and Snowball Bocconcini.

Hunting Strategy

If a hunter defeats the Ice Tower boss for the current week, then they have a Bonus round where every additional 20 catches with Arctic Asiago Cheese will give a guaranteed attraction of a Stuck Snowball Mouse on the 21st hunt.

Every catch of a Stuck Snowball Mouse causes an additional message to be left in the Hunter's Journal:

I just caught a Stuck Snowball Mouse for the X time! Poor guy keeps rolling though, getting bigger and bigger - pretty soon I should even get more loot from him!
I look forward to the next time I catch him!

Before the 51st catch, the message changes slightly every multiple of five catches:

I just caught a Stuck Snowball Mouse for the X time! He's definitely much bigger now. The next time I catch him, I should be able to get more stuff!

Loot

The quantity of loot dropped by Stuck Snowball Mouse depends on the number of catches caught by the hunter, as shown in the table below:
