Product Description

Product Description

A recent find at Miskatonic University has unearthed even more mysteries pertaining to the strange happenings in Arkham, Massachusetts. While the worshippers of the Ancient One grow in strength, the stalwart defenders of this sleepy town are put to the ultimate test.

Miskatonic Horror is a new type of Arkham Horror expansion that builds upon the materials found in the ample library of other Arkham Horror expansions. While the components and rules found in Miskatonic Horror can be enjoyed with only the Arkham Horror base game, the more expansions you incorporate, the more aspects of Miskatonic Horror you can enjoy.

From the Manufacturer

"Miskatonic University is a place of learning and discovery. However, the diligent researchers of the acclaimed college are about to uncover a host of terrible mysteries that should have remained buried...Build upon your Arkham Horror experience with Miskatonic Horror, a unique expansion that enhances your existing Arkham Horror expansions! With nearly 450 new cards, Miskatonic Horror adds new Mythos cards and Location cards for Dunwich, Kingsport, and Innsmouth, as well as new cards for Gates, Epic Battles, Relationships, Injuries, Madness, Skills, Blights, and much more! Not only does Miskatonic Horror enhance all of the Arkham Horror expansions, it also contains materials that can supplement the base game, such as new player reference sheets, the Institution variant, and a variety of new cards. The professors of Miskatonic University seek to define their world through science... but their hubris will soon lead them to discoveries too horrific to fathom."

Customer Reviews

This is a great expansion pack for Arkham Horror... if you already have expansion packs.
Jeremy Kittleson
Well, thank Azathoth Itself this was the last expansion for the game because FFG would have gotten no more money from me afterward anyway.
Stephen Mann
I think this just irritated me when I opened the box so much that I still feel like FFG kind of pulled a fast one on me.

Overall this is a great addition to Arkham Horror and every other expansion set they've ever made. It's basically just more cards for everything. I understand that with the big board expansions (Innsmouth, Dunwich & Kingsport) Miskatonic actually increases the odds of drawing an open gate at these boards. That's good news as the biggest problem with those boards is that you could have potentially finished a whole game without ever visiting those boards. Um, this comment is for all you veterans.

If you're completely new to Arkham Horror, I DON'T recommend you buying this product. Why? Again, pretty much what this box does is expand on all the previous expansions. So if you don't have any of the old expansions or only half of them, this box is a heavy drop in the wallet for you. Buy this expansion last out of all of them and you'll feel your money's better earned. Or after you've purchased all three of aforementioned board expansion sets.

The box also includes some quick reference cards that tell you your limits based on # of players like monster limit on board, outskirt limit, # of open gates until the AO awakens. These cards are surprisingly useful. When I first looked at these I thought they'd be useless as you just remember this stuff anyways but with the cards it's a great quick reference for everyone at the table to glance at. So we use them all the time.

The last thing the box introduces are institutions. These are similar to Guardians except they're man-made and man-run organizations like the Miskatonic Univeristy, the Crime Organization and the FBI Bureau. Since we've played a few games with all of them, my players (and most everyone on the net) think these cards weren't thoroughly play-tested. All of them could have been tweaked just a bit.

Mistkatonic Horror is a different kind of Arkham Horror expansion. It is an expansion for the expansions, so to speak.

Does that mean that if you just own Arkham Horror this set is useless? No, there are some parts that can be used to expand just the base game, however if you don't own any of the expansions you will likely be very disappointed by the price of the set for very little value.

One of the things that I find infinitely helpful are the cards included that detail "if you have this many people playing, monster limit is X, gate limit is X" and so on. They should have included these in the original set and have corrected that oversight with this expansion. It isn't worth buying for these alone, however.

What it is worth buying for is if you want to add cards or a hand full of variants to your game IF you own other AH expansions. ALL of the expansions (minus the original Curse of the Dark Pharaoh set) have new cards added with this set. While none of the cards add anything jaw dropping amazing, they do definitely add to the difficulty and fun of the expansions and the main game itself.

If you go in to buy this set as a normal AH expansion set, be prepared to be disappointed. If you approach it as an expansion of the expansions you already own, then you will likely be happy. There is roughly an expansion set, one of the larger expansion sets, worth of new cards. There are no new game boards, however, which makes the $50 MSRP seem a touch high to me.

I really like what it adds to the sets I own, but since there isn't a new game board I don't think the MSRP is completely justified.

Arkham Horror had become a "dolls house" game by the time this was put out, with people (me included) queuing up to buy the latest expansion (sometimes twice if early adoption produced poor rules).

Well, thank Azathoth Itself this was the last expansion for the game because FFG would have gotten no more money from me afterward anyway.

My own fault in a way, because I pre-ordered it based on the fact it was a new expansion and the box was one of the big ones. I was expecting a board-based expansion.

Yes there are a lot of cards in the box, but most of them have such specific prerequisites that you'll only usually be playing with a fraction of them (unless I've completely misunderstood the purpose).

The box is the same size as the "board" expansions, but could have been an Elder Sign sized one as most of the internal space is air. I opened mine in front of my LFGS owner and we both just stared and said "What the..."

The cards are beautiful, the usual high quality affair and that does cost to put in front of people, but the fact is that each of the subsets of these cards could have been made available for those who felt the need at a fraction of the cost of the full "one-size fits nobody" version, maybe in sachet packaging.

My overall feeling was that I'd been royally taken and I decided right there that I'd not buy anything else from this game series again.

I also question the utility of cards that can only be used if more than one expansion is used, since adding two extra boards to the basic set would require something the size of an English billiard table to accommodate, a footprint I doubt very many can achieve in the home. I stand ready to be contradicted.
