Collecting Cheese from friend’s Profile

If you click on the shield and go to your hunter’s profile you will see a special event HUD. If you haven’t done so, you will need to setup your table first, so that when your friends visit your profile they can collect the Gingerbread Cheese. So what you do is click on “Visit another friend” to jump to one of your friend’s profile, then click collect cheese, each collection will give you 2 Gingerbread Cheese. You can collect 10 times per day, which is 20 Gingerbread Cheese per day.


If your friend happen to be inactive and haven’t set up the table, you can click on “Chip Ice” and send them a request. After you will get 1 Ice Coin. You collect a maximum of 30 Ice Coins from here during this entire event.


Great Winter Hunt Guide

This year’s GWH event area is Festive Snow Fort.  Click travel it will have a picture that ask you if you want like to go to Festive Snow Fort. Click on it to quickly move to the event area.

Festive Snow Fort

1. Farming the Event Cheese

To start off the event you first need to collect the special event cheese, Snowball Bocconcini. To collect these cheese all you need to do is arm you best physical power type trap setup. Physical is recommended because of the three troublemakers that is only affective on specific power types:

  • Gladiator Mouse – only power
  • Hydra Mouse – Hydro/Physical/Tactical
  • Vinetail Mouse – Physical/Tactical

For cheese use Brie or Gouda is great to get started, but the following will help attract more of the GWH mice that drops Snowball Bocconcini:

  • Seasonal Gouda
  • Festive Feta
  • Gingerbread Cheese
  • Super|Brie+

Almost all the mice here drops Snowball Bocconcini, so you should able to collect good amount of them in no time.

2. Collecting the Snow Blocks

After collection fair amount of Snowball Bocconcini, you can start collecting Snow Blocks. Start by arming the Snowball Bocconcini and again use the same best physical power type trap setup.

As you hunt with Snowball Bocconcini, you will get one progress point per successful. This is displayed on the bottom of the HUD as tiny snow balls. As you can see along the progress there are 3 bigger balls and 1 locked at the end. So far the three bigger balls would be the 3 mini bosses and the last locked is the S.N.O.W. Golem Mouse, it should be unlocked as soon as you had built your snow fort.


3. Building the Fort and upgrading the expansions

The reason for collecting the Ice Blocks is for building the fort and building the weapons to fight down the boss, S.N.O.W. Golem Mouse. The fort can be built with 80 Ice Blocks. Next are range of perks you can have by building the expansions and upgrading them. You can see the full description of each extension and what perks it give by clicking build in the HUD.


More guides will come as more of the secretes are revealed! Keep in touch with this guide for the latest updates!

    I think you might wanna add in that the mini bosses will give 20/25/30 snow blocks accordingly upon capture respectively (20 for the first, 25 for the second mini boss, 30 for the third mini boss) 😛

    S.N.O.W. Golem Mouse will drop 30 snow blocks upon capture as well 😛

    Any info on which mice drop advent chocolates? Since all you get form the callendar are a total of 24 u need around 50 for all the skins availabe for purchase with chocolates. Also how can you acquire Cannon bits, since I plan on buying 2 balsters and later on upgrading on of them to a Gattler.
    My recommendation to collectors is that this years themes are not worth it. I would suggest getting all the skins plus traps. The traps only cost like…90 ice coins total. I plan on doing the whole event and will give feedback whenever I can.

    Edit: Cannon bits are dropped from the boss mouse at the end of the run, he also drops 30 ice blocks and for me – 8 coins.

    I do not see the hydra in the effectiveness window nor have encountered one, or am I just too lucky? 😛

      guess if you hunt with normal cheese, you’ll see hydra.
