Types of mouse holeEdit
Regular mouse holeEdit
Regular mouse holes are the standard holes found on most maps. There can be one or two regular holes per map. Which hole the mice enter on a map does not matter, although some holes are easier to reach than others. Maps with regular mouse holes can have no shaman, one shaman, or two shamans working together. Any shaman on the map will receive a number of points equal to the number of mice that entered a hole with cheese.
Shaman mouse holesEdit
Shaman mouse holes are pink and blue holes, respectively, which will always appear together on Dual Shaman maps. There will only be one of each, and there are never a gray mouse hole on a Dual Shaman map. There are always two shamans on such maps: one pink and one blue, for each of the mouse holes. Each shaman will receive a number of points equal to twice the number of the mice that entered the hole of the same color as the shaman—a pink shaman will not receive any points for mice that went in the blue mouse hole and vice versa. As a result, the shamans often fight each other to gain the privilege of mice entering their mouse hole.
- Before an update, mice would instantly be killed after bringing the cheese to the hole within five seconds of loading the map. This was referred to as the five-second rule and was in place to prevent cheaters from instantly acquiring the cheese and going into the mouse hole. This was later removed, as a glitch that caused this hack to function was fixed.
