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."

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.

This one expands the previous expansions of Arkham. If you haven't already purchased a number of the expansions (at least 4) it's probably not worth the money, but if you have almost all the other expansions and are looking for a way for them to all integrate together better...this is a great way to do it.

Boyfriend was thrilled to receive this for the holidays. Was a little disappointed there weren't more Gods in the box and confused why there were Dunwich Horror sheets in the box, but once played he really enjoyed the expansion

Bought this as a gift for my husband. We both enjoy playing Arkham Horror. Wasn't sure what to expect, but it turns out to be a fabulous expansion for your existing expansions (which we already had). We both enjoyed what this expansion added to the game play. Obviously, this would be a terrible expansion if you don't already own other expansions.

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.

This is a biog box expansion, but with no additional map. This means that it has *lots* of cards, enough cards to expand all of the other expansions and the basic game, actually.

I do not have all of the expansions, but after seeing some of the cards in this set, I think I might have to get them.

Plus there are officially printed versions of The Dunwich Horror and a couple other things you could get off the website, but probably not print on glossy cardstock the way Fantasy Flight can. Now all the eldritch evils are on nice shiny cardstock!

An excellent expansion overall!

This is a great expansion pack for Arkham Horror... if you already have expansion packs. This pack adds cards to the packs you already have. It does not stand alone with Arkham Horror.
