Had a blast first time and felt we are going to need more meat to make this an even better experience in the future after playing it a few times.
Read on here that this expansion is pretty good to start with. Although here in sweden it has beena bit difficult to get hold of it actually. Finally found it this evening though at an obscure retailer
Hope the money is worth it!

I got a lot of play value out of the set. The Gargoyle isn't useful and Brother Marcus is too powerful, but most of the set is great.

Something Wicked adds sooo much to the base game and gives you more immersion into the Touch of Evil theme. Great expansion.

You will not be disappointed with your choice. Have fun battling those new villins.


Cheers

Something Wicked adds a lot to the game. I enjoyed the base game but it just didn't feel complete but adding Something Wicked makes the game feel right (even when not using both boards). I frequently feel this way about Flying Frog games -- the first game is good but something is missing or doesn't just work right which is added by the first expansion. Frequently just more cards seems to be the majority of the fix.

I also feel that the game works best if you take all the recommended optional rules as being rules that should be always used. The tweaking of the rules in the Something Wicked manual does seem to fix a few problems in the base game. I also really like the Cult of the Crimson Hand being added to the plot of the game.

sounds awesome to be honest. Also as an Arkham player from beginning i thought i needed more meat on the bone so to speak. Cannot wait for this box!

I couldn't find this expansion so I got the Coast, is that a bad thing?

Can't see many copies of the Wicked one in the UK

is it going to come back into print?

I actually played for the first time with all 3 expansions yesterday evening with my family. It was great fun.It feels very complete now for us even though i dont mind any extra stuff inc in the future of course.
I also had trouble finding the wicked exp at first. I was lucky to find a few odd stores having it in stock though and bought it as soon as i could.
Try checking abroad for it as well, im sure it exists somewhere!
I recommend it a lot. Some pretty cool stuff in there. As with the coast you get stuff you really want, like new heroes, cool villains( even though i liked them better in the coast) and some great heroes.
Good luck finding it

A guy in Germany on Ebay is selling 5 copies for £101 each, very tempting but I just cant justify that kind of money on an add on like this as much as I like the game particularly since they said they will be reprinting it at some point
