First Rat is a Core Game for up to five players, which can also be played solo. Numerous strategies, special skills, and a variable setup create new excitement for every game. On every turn, players have to decide whether they want to move one of their rats up to five spaces or if they want to move multiple rats up to three spaces instead – which is only possible if the rats end their movement on spaces of the same color. And if there are already rats in that space, it also costs one cheese per rat! Moving across the junkyard, players collect resources, buy (or steal) useful items, build parts of the rocket or train their Rattronauts, in order to collect as many Victory Points as possible. Who will be the First Rat?
