I have bought the DH expansion and now the games are not so easy to win- off late we have been doing a lot better (60 to 40). Do you guys recommend any other expansion to enhance the experience-either in terms of difficulty or enjoyment or introducing new game mechanics? I haven't read any of the Lovecraft stories, so I can't really appreciate/understand a lot of the theme, but I enjoy the game nevertheless. I am planning to buy at most 1 more expansion - would adding any one in particular make the AH experience complete?

Innsmouth would be my pick. I love that one. Read the story too. It's a great story and the game does a good job really bringing out the plot elements in it.

There are ELEVENTY BILLION instances of this question (and assorted variants) being asked on these forums as well as on the official Fantasy Flight forums.

A quick peruse of these posts using the search function would more than answer your question.

I would recommend either King In Yellow or Innsmouth. Both add some good mechanics, for instance KIY makes the Terror Track more of a concern. If budget is an issue I would suggest going with the cheaper small box expansion - KIY.

Thanks a lot everyone! I should have probably done more research myself before posting. But thanks again.

The answer is of course: all of them! (apart from the original Curse otDP expansion which has now been updated with a new edition - buy this instead)

Another question might be in which order should I buy them?
I bought them in the order they were produced, which is as good as any.

If you are only going to ever buy one more then Innsmouth would be my choice.
