Worth the money, trust me.

Set up is pretty quick and easy once you are familiar with the game, but there is a bit of a steep learning curve before you get to that point.

An excellent expansion to the Arkham Horror base game.

Format: Board Game
Kingsport Horror, the second "big box" expansion for Arkham Horror, is a must purchase for fans of the board game. It adds new elements to pretty much every aspect of the base set: new investigators, new gates, new items, new encounters, new monsters, and (last but not least) the Epic Battle variation which adds a significant and challenging twist to your last stand against the Ancient One. But this expansion is more than just markers and mechanics: it also introduces characters and locations from a wide variety of Lovecraft's writings into the game, making his world larger - and more frightening - whether you play with all of Kingsport or just mix a few extra cards into the standard game.

4 1/2 stars, rounded down because I find the rift progress mechanic unwieldy (but still fun).

After receiving this expansion for the wonderful Arkham Horror base game we decided to go all out and throw every expansion we has onto the playing field. With the maximum investigators so we could have people covering all points, we gave it a shot. Many a player were devoured, and many and old gods broke the seal and destroyed our world, but it was so much fun. The new Kingsport field was aimed at giving the players a bit more survivability, but the damage that could be done from a Rift opening was immense. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth it. If you want your players to survive better, you can just include the playing field additions. Personally, we saw moving portals because of the Rifts opening, and it was a lot of fun having to deal with a portal opening, moving and then another one opening behind it. (Apparently some of the smaller expansion have moving portals as well and we're excited to combine these and attempt to survive.)

The Kingsport Horror Expansion is a little more forgiving than the other two board expansions. Very nice expansion.

The idea of rifts, while interesting, are havoc causing and not in a good way. The two times I have used this expansion this mechanic hosed players with monsters to the point where they abandoned Kingsport all together.

Format: Board Game
Pros:
-More Arkham Horror cards and locations.
-More Ancient Ones.
-More Characters.
-The Elephant Gun (+8 att, $1 to reload).
-Introduces Guardians to make Arkham a little easier,
-Very manageable encounter cards,
-It's actually pleasant to leave a character in Kingsport.

Cons:
-At least 1 character must babysit this board to keep rifts from opening and other than that there is no reason to be there.
-No gates open on this board.
-It's extremely rare a clue appears in Kingsport.
-The board is made out of thinner cardboard from the rest of the games and feels cheap and moves if you breath on it.
-All the new monsters are hard, increasing the chances you draw hard monsters from the cup.
-The Reporter character starts the game cursed and only can be un-cursed by becoming blessed, by far the worst character in the game.

Final Thoughts:
We love Arkham and we're happy to have this expansion, but its not my favorite and this board will be the first one we remove if we need the space. The Rifts mechanic is alright they open and move on the board like a monster, you don't go in them and when they move they spawn a monster and add a Doom Token. The Rifts are an annoyance, when open really accelerate how fast the game ends. I wonder if the creators actually played this board, it really feels separate and waste of a character just to have them babysit the Rift Track because other than that they can't help the other characters win the game. The box to the feel of the boards feels like it was made from a different manufacturer from the rest, from the board to the packaging it just feels cheaper. This was hard to find and we paid $49.99 at the local game game shop but its not worth anymore than that unless your a crazed Arkham fan.

Dare to dream? The mist shrouded Town of Kingsport awaits! This expansion is really neat, adds the guardians! Just some help when all else seems lost. Adds some really helpful characters to the mix. Worth the money, trust me.

This expansion adds aquatic destinations to your board as well as a new town. We had a lot of fun playing with this but just like the other bigger expansions this is something that takes time and effort to learn. Since it's an expansion I would assume you have the actual Arkham Horror game in which case you would know this is not a casual game.
