Amazing! The Lost in Space and Time scenarios are my personal favourites. They're really challenging as the Keeper, and hard tasks as an investigator.

The first printing of this expansion has some serious errors in it, but FF sent out replacement components to anyone who bought it. It adds 3 new stories, new characters and new mechanics - fantastic little box.

1 play of the Re-animator story so far, which was very good... a tense game which the investigators won by the skin of their teeth.

Reasons to purchase:

1. Additional combat result cards - these bloat out the existing decks by nearly double. This stops the combat from getting stale, and is one of the better reasons to get this expansion.

2. Four new characters. Featuring a nice mix of new abilities and strengths.

3. Some awesome new map tiles. The conservatory, and a lab complex, spring to mind.

4. Four new monster models. I, for one, and a big fan of the Crawling One's sculpt - they look fantastic painted!

5. The Lost in Time and Space scenario is brilliant, quite brilliant.

It was my life, like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was to let it be.

One play so far of the Lost in Time and Space scenario. It was incredibly thematic with the investigators killing a monster, the photographer taking a photo of it (+2 to attacks to that type of monster), and the doctor performing an autopsy (extra Skill tokens). The magician had a robe and mask to move freely among the cultists, and when we used the time machine to go to the future, he was able to walk through walls to access previously inaccessible rooms. The story came down to one investigator in the hidden lab trying to dismantle the time machine while monsters were tearing at her flesh and another investigator was about to be possessed and shoot her with a shotgun. With only 2 health left, she completed the task. It took us four hours to finish, but for a story like that, I thought it was well worth it.

I think the game should be played less as a competitive endeavor and more as an RPG with the Keeper giving the investigators a good game and everybody winning via the story it tells.

The forbidden alchemy puzzle is the best, it is hard to do, and can really twist a game

Perfectly fits to the base game. 2 out of 3 Scenarios are outstanding!

Interesting expansion that adds a few options for both the Investigators and Keeper without drastically altering the formula.

More cinematic scenarios. I really like the Alchemy puzzle aspect and the side effect cards which give the keeper more options to use threat against the investigators.

Once the horrible and game breaking first edition bugs are fixed, Forbidden Alchemy works pretty well as an expansion. The new features are less than dramatic, so it's easy to like or dislike, based on your opinion of the base game.

3 good stories - after updating with errata from FAQ. No complaints here since I know I will get updated parts at some future time. Until then my edited parts work just fine.

New characters, new monsters, and three new scenarios. FA is better bang for the buck than the PoD expansions.

Misprinting issues aside (I didn't find them as severe as some folks did: the errata sheet is sufficient as a work-around until FFG has the revised cards ready to send out), a lot of good additions to the base game. So far I have only played one scenario (Yellow Matter 1A) and found it to be a worthy addition. Can't wait to try out the other two and variations on all three.
