Wait: there is a second thread this week with a Feedback Question the dev’s like you to react to: Should the Forbidden Grove “lock”?

=== Forum Features: What’s keeping hunters busy? ====
* Zugzwang’s Tower – Queen after King: Glitch?
There is a specific occurrence within Zugzwang’s Tower which seems to be happening quite a bit and is confusing a lot of hunters. It does initially appear to be a fault so we thought we would try to explain it.
It occurs when a hunter has caught their two Rooks of whichever side and is waiting for the Queen, and it only happens when their hunt falls on the hour at the same time as a trap check. What has been happening is that when some hunters have been sounding the horn on the hour, they appear to have caught a King, been thrown out into the Seasonal Garden, and then caught a Queen, in that order.
This has been most annoying for hunters who planned on switching to Checkmate cheese after catching the queen in order to go after the Chess Master on that run.
However, what is really happening is that the game has decided that you are going to catch the Queen and then the King but due to the way the trap checks work, for some reason that one gets displayed first. What is important to note is that even if the hunts had shown up in the correct order, since the hunts occurred at the same time there wouldn’t have been any chance to change your bate anyway. Unfortunately the only way to counter this is to try to not let your hunt fall at the same time as a trap check.
So if this does happen to you, please don’t worry or be too concerned about it. If anything count yourself lucky for catching a King and Queen together!
Oh and do refresh your hunting page after every hour: otherwise the trapcheck wont show up!
The following link is the one that prompted this article, although there have been other threads made regarding this before: http://cut.gd/4oNX
* Newbies are lucky :)
We all know that :) And for whatever reason: its just true, especially if you no newby anymore :p
But check the thread: they always have been lucky!
* Tower mysteries slowly unraveling… slowly…
The Tower can be HARSH…
Never better expressed then in this experience: “My younger brother caught his Mystic Queen at 96% amp the other day. He never caught the King before the amp completely drained.”source: http://bit.ly/aG92zL
A lot is still misty in Tower…
I find bits and pieces of reasoning everywhere, like this: “The amplifier does not amplify the luck, so attraction’s pretty important if you’re on a low amplifier.” And: “Turns out, the amplifier dumps luck as you go below 100% – says so on your profile stats; so keep your power stuff”ship be: http://bit.ly/dguf7f
And now, does it, or does it not make sense to drop to a lower power Trap for catching the King? Two opposite opinions on the first page of this thread: http://bit.ly/8XzqVK

==== Rumours, Opinions … and Stories ====
* Wanna try a Double Tower run?
And be succesfull? Check out the tips and experiences from some that tried this before. There’s some really interesting details in there, like this:
“There is only one king of each side available. Once you catch him, you won’t catch another. Not only that, but once you defeat one side of the board, you won’t even attract knights, bishops, or queens from that side. The only mice that you will still attract are pawns and rooks…and not very often in my experience.”
Only giving one example here, go check it out and try – if you dare! O.o
* Spellbook base: any expectations?
And while we are all wondering whether that new fantastic base will live up to its specs, as not many are already hunting with it or bragging about the results… Some wise guy (oh no, not just somebody) phrased nicely what to expect:
”Spellbook is better than magma under certain conditions but in the majority of cases magma is predicted to give the higher catch rate when the overall trap setup has high luck and the effectiveness modifier of your setup vs. your target mouse is high” (Aaron M.)
Now can you beat that phrasing? I had to read it 3 times to get it, but then it certainly makes sense :p
I just have to pay tribute to all the hunters that swore to get their Heat Bath blueprints and are desperately hunting Dragons and gathering Isles-loot, Fire Salts Peppers, crafting Inferno Havarti…. Keep on going folks! Never loose Faith! Mousehunt is NOT about Common Sense!
Bestest Quote to go with that: “10.000 dragons and you rule the universe ;]” – Aleksandra K.

* A facebook mouse… a good idea?
“It’s only available when it feels like it, pops up in random places, the mouse is basically worthless in points and gold, and everytime you catch it you have to type rtsp before you can see your camp page.”
* Last but not Least….

# Anybody who has news or wants to write a (fluffy) piece but not a whole Mibbler, can send the copy or the idea, or even just the interesting thread-adress… to my pm-box :)
# No News, no Mibbler, as there is a a very strong-headed non-fluff person on the board of advisors.
# No Fluff, well – we have to warn you here – but in case of no fluff we might accidentally still post a Mibbler with strong warnings of putting on your sunglasses first before reading.
# If no crew: no Mibbler. Which is really really sad. Luckily there’s always the possibility of posting your news or newsrelated question in the last Mibbler’s thread.
