Or will it require a mandatory buy in to the expansion to use properly? This will be my first zcide game, so I'm unsure if anyone would be able to tell. Love the mini but the cost is more then half of an expansion at retail.

Difficult to say, but I'd guess that they may be enough for the threat levels blue to yellow, but probably not enough to be challenging at orange to red.

I wouldsay that they are enough to make the Rat king a great threat and overthink some of the ongoing strategies.

I'm personally passing this expasion and sticking with the Rat King alone.

If you're worried about running out of rats there's plenty of rat minis out there you could proxy.

True, but you'll also need to add some more spawn cards.

There would be an excellent chance of EXTRA language versions of the Rat Spawn Cards in the Rat King Box

I decided to just keep the base pledge. As much as I love the model, I'll have plenty of content to paint.

If you don't mind about proxy minis or using different language cards, and don't care too much about the content of the other expansion; that's enough. Because you'll need extra minis and cards, as it's already known that rats would have extra activations every time there's a rat card.

What I still don't know is if they'll have 2 extra activations if there are no rats minis to put when you draw a rat card, instead of 1, as you have to give extra activations every time you run out of some minis according to the rulebook.

He means that he's passing on the expansion that comes with more rats and is only getting the Rat King.
