Just double checking, creeps are a free activation just like the super monsters? Got a bit confused when looking at the ghost creeps having 0 skull and the squirrels having a 1 skull.

Yep, creeps activate for free every activation which is what makes them (and other Insignificant monsters like Skullbats and Fire Gels) so powerful. The SKULL numbering is something of an inconsistency on Sodapop's part though it should be noted that you can activate Insignificant models using SKULL points instead of via Insignificant if you so wish (useful if you would not otherwise be able to activate the model using the free method). In these cases it does make a difference whether the creep costs 0 SKULLs or 1 SKULL to activate.

Insignificant models only get a free activation if a hero is on the same board as them. If a hero is not on the same board, you use skulls.

So that only makes a difference for the 1 skull creeps, the 0 skull types can be activated for free in both cases?

I don't know if that was a mistake in printing, or those particular creeps can be activated for 0. It's worth trying to get that into the FAQ, probably. I would play it as printed though. The times when the heroes aren't on a board with the insignificant models is rare, excluding skullbats. Since skullbats are part of a spawn and not a creep, they will spawn on any board their spawner is on at the beginning of the game. But, they also have a 1 skull activation, so there's no worry there.
