We've only played through Chapter 1 and we're getting ready to start Chapter 2. We played Collin, Nez, Maginos, and Filch. In Chapter 2, someone has to play Lily.

Generally, should we be reading the initial Story up front and select our Mice that way? Or do we just choose someone to get left out of Chapter 2 and that player picks up Lily?

Certain chapters may have different requirements for mice that must be involved. This will mean that you cannot play the entire game with the same group of mice in every chapter (unless you house rule to allow it). So for each chapter, just choose the mice you want to use for that chapter taking the requirements into account. In your case, it does mean that a mouse you played with in Chapter 1 will not be used in Chapter 2.

The story in the game is meant to have some separate adventures in a sense, as it's not a straight up dungeon crawl with the same 4 characters from start to finish. So some mice might be off doing something else while the chosen mice are doing the chapter adventure.

You can play the game casually or as a campaign. If you play it as a campaign, a common recommendation is after finishing Chapter 1, place each mouse into a plastic bag along with the ability card(s) and equipment cards. Remember that you can carry one additional search card that may have been located by that mouse in Chapter 1 as well as the starting equipment. By doing this, the next time the mouse is played, it is simple to have all of the correct equipment for each mouse. You will use all the mice (one chapter uses all six) so getting all of them into the game early might be a good strategy to make them more powerful later in the game.

There are two chapters that use all 6 mice and some chapters where certain mice are required to be used or prevented from being used.

There are also certain chapters where having a certain mouse helps but is not required, For Chapter 2 I would reccomend Nez for example.

In general it is good strategy to devlop all 6 mice.

If you want, two players could take the extra two mice as their own. Or you can mix it up. We have done it both ways.
