It is a waste of gold to use expensive Brie if Swiss attracts mice frequently enough for you, but also if your trap is too weak to catch most of the mice that you attract. I would recommend using Marble and Cheddar until you get 500-lb Crusher or Mary O'Nette, then use primarily Marble. Once you get Treb or Rocketine, switch to a mix of Swiss and Marble. When you have the Swiss Army trap, switch to all Swiss cheese. It is probably not worth using Brie until you are in the Mountain. SB+ has some strategic benefits besides the attraction rate, but it's probably not worth using it as bait until you have the Deathbot or at least the Swiss Army trap in the Mountain. Really you can get excellent attraction rates with Swiss cheese, and this saves a lot of gold, especially in places where mice steal cheese from you. Also keep in mind that your accuracy improves attraction rate as well. If you are using the Target base, you might not need to use a higher quality cheese. Good hunting! Townsend Duong (Stanford) replied to Townsend's post on Jun 16, 2008 at 3:05 PM Until you buy your Deathbot, you should be balancing the need for better cheese with the need to save gold for the long term goal. If you find yourself with lots of extra gold, it can be tempting to spend your extra gold on better cheese, but it will help more to save that gold for your next upgrade. All other things being equal, better cheese tends to improve your average points per hunt, but it also tends to decrease your average gold profit per hunt. Until you get the Deathbot, gold should be the priority of the two. You should still be earning enough points as you go along through catches, horn blows, and King's rewards to meet requirements for upgrading traps.
