- I never play without
- Arkham Horror: The King in Yellow Expansion (love the blights)
- I like the goat expansion. It's better than Arkham Horror: Curse of the Dark Pharaoh Expansion

Haven't played in a long time! We own over half the expansions, but the base is hard enough for us to win and keep track of so we usually just use the base. We'll maybe throw in some lurker stuff like relationships, but that's usually it.

Despite owning all of the expansions, lately, I've stripped everything out and have been playing the base game without any expansions. The game is a bit more manageable to setup and put away without all of the extra stuff.

I only own the base game and rarely get to play it, so I can't justify getting any of the expansions, even though some of them sound awesome.

Nope, we always play with a bit from at least one expansion.

We like the king in yellow.

We always use one (and only one) full expansion. We do however, use components from other expansions that aren't in play. See Arkham Horror: Game Component Setups used by mccrispy

Note that the poll asks what is suitable as a first expansion/for newbies, so that just implies that Black Goat is a bit more complex/difficult than the others.

I have the base game and three of the small box expansions (King in Yellow, Curse of the Pharaoh, and Lurker of the Threshold). Sometimes I play with one expansion (King in Yellow is my favorite but I try and rotate them) but I actually still prefer just the base game. Sometimes I don't feel like setting up and adding the expansion, even though they are fairly small.

Yeah. And it's rated a 7.5 so I don't think "most people hate it".

I have all the expansions, but, while I haven't played with just the base game in awhile, I'd definitely go back to it. While the game is more fun with expansions, it's still a lot of fun on its own, and I'd like to revisit it, from time-to-time.

I would certainly rate it last among the expansions. It's only "very, very good"; the others are all better than that.

Yes everything possible. It's rare to win, but happens now and again. Choosing investigators can significantly increase the odds of winning.

I do the same thing.

Yeah, you'll NEVER win but wow is it ever fun to lose. Which, to stay true to the genre, you should always do anyway.

Yep Still playing basic game! I got Elder Sign, and is an easier way to intro noobs into this world. No plans on expansions for me, way too many other games to spend my squalid discretionary funds on...

Enjoy the base game just fine.

Me too - I keep thinking I'll get an expansion or two, but anytime I have the spare cash I'd rather just get a whole new game to diversify the collection. It helps that I don't play Arkham that often, so the base game hasn't gone stale on me.
