The rules are well-balanced and the cards and tokens are of quality stock and good art work.

The King in Yellow is my favorite horror story, so when I got into playing Arkham Horror, it didn't take long for a well-meaning friend to give me this expansion.

Objectively, The King in Yellow keeps to the high standards of the Arkham Horror game. The good & the bad are well-balanced. There are lots of new horrible things that can happen (events, etc) and lots of wonderful new spells and items to use in battling them. Two major new mechanics are introduced: the Herald (kind of a mini-Great Old One that makes the game a LOT harder) and the 'Acts' of the King in Yellow play. Essentially, at points in the game, you draw 'Act' cards. Either you react immediately (by taking a stiff penalty of some sort) or you move one step closer to losing the game.

Like with the other expansions, there are various ways to use the expansion. My preference is to mix the cards right in, but if you're finding the game too easy (which means you're a strategic genius the likes of Sun Tzu), you can highlight the expansion elements in a way that's guaranteed to make the game a LOT harder.

Subjectively, I'm madly fond of the content of this expansion. The King in Yellow is a mystical play (like the Necronomicon on stage!), and the expansion does a great job capturing the tone & fluff of the story created by Robert Chambers.

A lot of fun - highly recommended.

Me and some friends picked up this expansion for Arkham Horror for a long weekend. Spent nearly 3/4 of it playing this and we had absolute LOADS of fun. The new Herald system plus the many modes of play you can add KiY to your game makes for constant fun and a challenge for even beginners. The nice part is that this expansion is easy to add to the game even for brand new players. Hell, we had 2 new players and they were hooked instantly and understood right off the bat.

Now I know the game encourages 'house rules' but sometimes it is still fun just playing it by the book and sometimes throwing in your own mix of rules makes it insane fun with a race against time.

I WILL say this though-don't do like we did and end up mixing up your expansion cards AND the original decks together. It will make your internal decks absolutely huge and a burden to play with. We got KiY and Lurker's cars mixed together by accident and it took us a few hours to pull it all apart and get everything in proper place. Granted it IS fun to have the expansions together but more times it just adds an absolute mess to play with and cards that have no place in the current gameplay, especially when you end up with Mythos and spells from other games that exploit/break the other/current game. You can put rules around it but personally...I'd keep everything separate. It makes for confusion when stuff is all jumbled.

Oh, and these cards are not foolproof durable. If you gotta play with friends, make sure the grounding rule is no drinks near the board. Dampness ruins these cards fast. Ziplock bags if you don't have a card storage are a freakin' lifesaver!

Pros:
-Definitely an awesome addition to the game.
-More cards, more spells, more items, more skills...

Adds a new level of difficulty to the game if you have it figured out. Can be a bit dry if you are good at keeping the terror level down, but this expac has a few ways to bump it up on its own. Depending on your skill level, you may want to combine it with some other expacs, or it may be just the little boost you needed. Definitely good quality, though.

This a nice expansion. I really like the additional items and spells. The 90 Ancient Ones cards, along with the 76 investigator cards, really add to the base game. Very nice expansion.

This expansion is fun, and definitely adds a element of difficulty to an already long game. If you sit down to arkham horror, then buy a pizza, because you will be there for awhile.

If you find arkham easy after playing 3-4 plays, get this little expansion first. Definiltely made the game way harder for me with the blight cards and terror mechanic. Terror actually feels like real TERROR in this expansion.

Easily my favorite of the small box expansions. Adds tons of items, ramps up the difficulty, and everything added contributes to the overall theme. Includes numerous components that can be used in the base game plus addons to ramp up the difficulty for those who love to have the game stacked against them. Overall a great buy.
