I'd be psyched if this meant a reprint of Rattus: Pied Piper, which is way too hard to find these days.

In 2017 there will be a ton of new releases of Rattus products. We are working on several very cool things at the moment.

Before that RATTUS ACADEMICUS will supercharge the game!

I see there is a Spoils of War expansion and Boccacio promo. Will these be available in the US soon?

I tried to order via my FLGS but they don't seem to find it with their distributors. When can it be expected for general distribution?

Game Surplus has Rattus Academicus because they are importing it.

I don't think a US publisher will pick up the distribution rights. I had to get Rattus Mercatus ordered directly from Germany.

I just got my copy from Gamesurplus. I'm really excited for the Universities module.

Let us know how you like it! I really enjoy Rattus, but so far, the only person I've played it with is my 12-year old daughter...

Some expressed interests on my thoughts on this game expansion. Well, here they are. I really like this expansion.

The University module can be easily added to any game. Some university cards give bonuses for types of characters players have. Some University cards allow players to discard characters. The University allows players to be more aggressive in choosing character cards. Normally, our game group tries to make do with fewer characters.

The upgrades were quite enjoyable, though I probably won't play with these as often. Upgrades adds a intensity to the game. When characters become upgraded, they become quite a force. An upgraded card can do some amazing things. When cards are upgraded though, they do become a target for others to take. Players need to aggressively prevent someone from running away with the game. This module increases characters passing back and forth between players.

I liked both modules. Universities will see a lot of play time. The only thing I did not like about the upgrades, is that you can only upgrade the original characters from the game. It would be nice if upgrades became available for some of the other expansions. Overall, I think this is my second favorite expansion. I like this over Africanus and Mercatus. I still think Pied Piper is the best expansion. This is a pretty close second.

I hope this feedback is helpful. I really enjoyed Academicus. I would recommend this expansion. I can't wait to see what else they release for Rattus this year.

Too bad, this doesn't even seem readily available in Europe, there are no Amazon sellers in Germany that will ship to the States.

You may want to contact White Goblin with the question. In my experience, they are rather helpful.
