The Horned RatChaos in the Old World fans rejoice! The new expansion for Fantasy Flight Games’ unique game of Chaos Gods competing to subjugate the Warhammer Old World is here: The Horned Rat. This exciting expansion adds a fifth player—the verminous Skaven—to the game, plus introduces terrible new events, and new upgrade and power cards for the existing Powers. In addition, new ‘expert level’ Old World cards can either be shuffled into the existing deck or played on their own, bringing even more variety and challenges to the Chaos in the Old World game.

If you haven’t yet discovered Chaos in the Old World, it’s a strategic and challenging game set in the Old World of the Warhammer Fantasy games. Four Ruinous Powers—the dark gods Tzeentch, Khorne, Nurgle and Slaanesh—compete to corrupt and dominate the world. Chaos in the Old World is certainly one of the best designed games FFG has released in the past few years, and I highly recommend grabbing a copy.

With this new expansion the Skaven player can send his teeming ratmen minions across the world in an attempt to conquer humankind for their god: the Horned Rat!
