In Rattus: Africanus, the Black Death has crossed the Mediterranean with traveling merchants. This update to the 2010 Rattus release adds countless strategic possibilities with the introduction of a caravan piece, diplomat tokens, and four new characters with unique skills. As players settle in various countries in northern Africa and interact with local classes, region cards allow a greater level of control over outbreaks as they spread. Still, when the rats arrive, no one is safe.
Designed for up to six players, compared to four in the original, Rattus: Africanus delivers what feels like a completely new experience within the same 45-minute playing window. Score points with diplomats and grow your ranks using the caravan in this expansion, or combine it with the base game and other expansions for even more variability. When the plague withdraws and the game ends, the player with the highest surviving population wins.
