Enjoying the game. A few questions came up last night:

Can the mice get both disguises and the fork, or do they have to choose one?

Are disguises discarded after the gambling game?

Can the mice share cheese during the gambling game?

Is Nez stunned by the vision in the crystal tunnel? Or does his ability supersede the scenario rule?

Not a scenario question but:

What happens when the cheese tokens run out? Is the number in the game a hard limit?

We played...
1)that you had to choose

2)that if you won, we kept the disguises

3)We did share cheese

4)he was not stunned


We played twice and lost both times

We never had a chance to accumulate that much cheese but I think you would have to add cheese to the wheel somehow.

1. I don't think there's any reason you can't get both of them, you can have as many items in party stash as you want.

2. If you defeat all the rats, I would keep them, otherwise they are toast when you have to fight them.

3. We did not share cheese during the dice game in any of my games, since it would require a share action from someone other than the active player. (Now if you want to give cheese away during your turn at the game i.e. to the next player, that would be fine with me)

4. Nez can't be stunned.

Cheese tokens are, according to the game designer, a limited resource, and should be taken from players to put on the wheel if you run out. In practice, I suspect most people use alternate tokens. Myself, I don't understand why anyone would hoard that much cheese! You can't take it with you to the next scenario!

That's funny,
I posed this question to the folks at Plaid Hat and got this response...

If you run out of cheese do you use proxy cheese tokens?

Yes, if you run out of cheese, you proxy the cheese tokens.

- Cory

That pretty much says cheese is not a limited resource.
Could you point me to the designer's ruling please Dr Jones

The designer didn't say it is limited. In response to a bgg user who suggested to take cheese from mice in case of shortage, he just said he really liked that houserule.

Further to this, can multiple mice get stunned in the crystal tunnels, or does only the first have a vision?

What is the protocol when the rats roll cheese during gambling? Are cheese tokens added to the wheel as normal, or is this a special case where this rule is ignored?

It's only during combat that cheese is added to the wheel due to a minion rolling a cheese icon (unless otherwise specified due to a special rule). When gambling, it's only the '*' icons that are important.
