Lets put one thing clear here, this grade is for the expansion, if you want my opinion on the main game, you have to look at that game's page!

I have to say, this expansion is Great! I had a lot of fun! I don't think I'll ever want to play arkham without it! It adds more cards & more variation to the whole so that's GOOD. The game gets more difficulty trough this expansion, which makes it all the more exciting!

I played the temporary exhibit today & it was DIFFICULT as hell. There was even more despair than usual and it was even more chaos. Just as the box promised The 2 Old One signs at the same time but no gate were PAINFULL. It was amazing!

Both the temporarily and permanent exhibition are worth while!

*first play* 3 players - I added the expansion into the base game and played. Not bad. A few exhibit artifacts came into play and those were cool. The additional encounter cards are always welcome as they add variety to the "story". I will probably wind up leaving this expansion in the base game for all future plays (like Dodge City with Bang!).

AH expansion = automatic "10", although this is definitely the weakest content you'll find in any AH expansion.

A new expansion for Arkham Horror but a little lackluster. The new cards don't really add anything to the game. But in conjunction with Dunwich Horror, they begin to see some use.

The Nyarlathotep expansion—we play with the Big N and the Dark Pharaoh herald.

Played this once, and incorrectly. The experience was... diluted. Looking forward to playing this for reals.

UPDATE: The problem with the first play was running the Permanent Exhibit with all the cards shuffled into the base game. This made the Dark Pharaoh cards very rare and the game near-indistinguishable from a base scenario. For our second play we used only the DP cards (replacing the Mythos, Gate and Arkham Encounter decks) and it made for a sweet bit of ugly: things looked utterly bleak by turn two, and when Nyarlathotep arrived (something that never happens to us anymore in the base game) we had only shut a single gate. Two players got scrubbed and it literally came down to the wire before we beat him back and shut him out of our world.

PURGED & replaced with the Revised Edition.

My rating is tied to Arkham Horror itself, no way I can rate this expansion by itself.

More stuff for Arkham Horror? Yes, please! Probably this is the weakest expansion for the game, but worthy anyway.

While this is certainly not needed in any way, I do think that this adds a number of elements and features to the game to bring the level of tension up along with nifty new cards and ideas. I'm pleased that the number of different types of encounters has expanded. I could see how if I played the game all the time the encounters would have gotten repetative. I've played this only as a visiting exhibit, but now I feel confident that it won't distract from the game if everything gets shuffled together.

Esentially this is the same expansion. The changes include the complete removal of barred at locations. This system is replaced by a curse of the dark pharaoh token that starts in a street area and allows players that stop in that street to have an encounter from a new encounter deck.
Also, there are police tokens that come into play by way of the encounter deck. This edition also comes with a card for the Dark Pharaoh herald.

Other than these three changes the expansion is identical to the original. All the cards are identical to the original, except some typo corrections. In fact, I boxed up my original copy of this expansion and passed it on to my niece to play with her copy of AH.

The most versatile of the expansions. This can be included with any combination of base game and large board expansion. It does not seem to effect the mix of cards and I really love those exhibit cards. The exhibit cards are very useful...if you can get one! I always get a little excited when Luck is with me and I can take one of these prized items.

We purchased this one after owning DH and KH. A little backwards...I know...but definitely worth it. I have no complaints, it adds a little more variety to the game with those exhibit cards. And I really enjoy the ever increased replay ability with the Location, Mythos, and Gate cards!

The first of what is hopefully many expansions to come. This one adds an interesting Egyptian theme to the adventure and adds lot of interesting new variety to the game. Lots of interesting twists to all phases of the game make the city of Arkham a richer, more entertaining experience. It also makes the game more challenging which is definitely a good thing!

Played the game 3 times with 2 characters using the permanent style of play. Adds variety and complexity to the game but the added complexity will not impact experienced players; not recommended when introducing new players to the game though. It certainly makes for a more challanging game which is quite welcomed. If you like AH, this is a no-brainer.

There are some really neat new cards in this set. Played using the visiting exhibit version of the rules. I am not sure it runs all that well this way. It was nice to try it this way to see a heavy concentration of the new cards in action, but I miss having the old location cards.My rating will probably go up after trying it with the permanent exhibit version. -

After playing a couple of times with the Permanent Exhibit version I find that the expansion works much better.

Does the main thing that I think is lacking in the main game, Adds cards. I love playing the main game, but I was getting tired of the same seven cards for each location. Now with this expansion, you have more variety and flavor to each location's encounters. Definite buy for lovers of the base game.
