How do you catch a mouse in real life? You set a mousetrap, bait it and then just wait. This is also the concept of MouseHunt. MouseHunt is not an action game. It is a passive game meant to be played leisurely when you check your Facebook online, and the game involves a fair amount of waiting time.
First, you will need to add the application in your Facebook account.
Login to your Facebook.
Type "mousehunt" in the search text field beside the word "Logout."
Locate the application MouseHunt, which is developed by HitGrab Inc.
Click on the "View Application" link on the right and add the application to your profile. Now we are ready to start! All new beginners start in the Town of Gnawnia.
Select the trap/base that you want to buy. It does not make a big difference, so just go ahead and purchase your favorite trap/base. Later in the game though, you will need to learn more about the different types of traps and bases.
Buy the cheapest cheese, Cheddar. (As a newcomer, you do not have much gold after all.) You can spend all your gold on buying cheese because you will be rewarded with gold for each mouse that you catch. Now the setup of your trap is done and all you need to do is to wait.
Read the in-game guide. (Click on the "Lore" button.) This will give you more information on how to play the game, as well as the places you can explore and the cool traps you can buy.
All it takes to succeed in the game is time and patience. You will eventually catch that elusive mouse and you will eventually earn enough gold to purchase the next trap upgrade. Just have patience.
