About

My name is Matt Rowland. I have been playing Mousehunt since April 10, 2009.

What started off as a simple diversion soon gave way to a game that I found myself falling in love with. There was something about it that I kept coming back for more – whether it was the simple mechanic of blowing the horn every 15 minutes or the strategy to the game, I was hooked almost instantly.

I invited a co-worker, Jason Petite, to play the game that summer, and soon he and I began having entire lunch conversations about the game, along with walks around our work campus. We’d discuss MouseHunt’s economy, power creep, and that ever-elusive Black Widow mouse, among other things. 🙂

To assist Jason, and even though I was a fairly new hunter myself, I began writing a guide to assist him in the early stages of the game. I have written game guides before, so it was something I was fairly familiar with. I wrote it in Microsoft Word, and I would update it here and there when new content was released. I kept different documents for trap analysis as well.

I’m not sure at what point I decided to publish it online, but I had emailed my documents to a few other people over the years, and ultimately I decided I needed to put it on a website. I initially started with a Blogspot site, but that quickly became an issue with capacity, functionality and usability. I moved my content to WordPress in February 2014, and am looking to add more weekly content to the site as I grow my audience.

I have never interacted or spoken directly to the MouseHunt developers, but perhaps someday I will. There are a lot of great people out there who also write guides and offer many tools to assist hunters; I am simply one of them. I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I do feel like I have a fairly good grasp of how this game is played.

Personally, I am a husband and a father. My wife Beth also plays MouseHunt, though she just blows the horn and I usually have to tell her what to do. She doesn’t get into the inner workings of the game that much. 🙂 Both of my kids love to see what kind of mice we catch, and enjoy looking at all the different artwork in the game.

I welcome everyone to reach out and contact me if you have questions, or leave comments on the site. I can be reached at mrowland1@gmail.com.

  1. Appreciated if you could make a page on making enough points especially for count and duke? ._.?
    Thanks.

  2. Hey, i am a count 25% currently at warpath. I realised from my friends that i have a very low points of a mere 165million, whereas they are having 250million and above at 65% count. What did i do wronf before? Is there any place that you would recommend for me to rake up points fast?

    • For your level, the Warpth is the best place to churn points and rank up quicker.

      Points don’t directly correlate to your rank either. They help, but it’s not an exact formula either.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!

  3. Thanks for a great guide, nicely written and in depth. I’ve bookmarked it ready for my Tower run, I’m still collecting Key Shards at the moment.
