All the pieces were present, shipping was great I have no complaints.

This expansion has some of my favourite characters and offers many new levels to it that I think any group would enjoy.

HASH(0xa84bc390) out of 5 stars A Grand Expansion of Lovecraft Country Aug. 26 2010
By Timothy Walker - Published on
Format: Toy
Kingsport Horror, the second "big box" expansion for Arkham Horror, is a must purchase for fans of the board game. It adds new elements to pretty much every aspect of the base set: new investigators, new gates, new items, new encounters, new monsters, and (last but not least) the Epic Battle variation which adds a significant and challenging twist to your last stand against the Ancient One. But this expansion is more than just markers and mechanics: it also introduces characters and locations from a wide variety of Lovecraft's writings into the game, making his world larger - and more frightening - whether you play with all of Kingsport or just mix a few extra cards into the standard game.

4 1/2 stars, rounded down because I find the rift progress mechanic unwieldy (but still fun).

HASH(0xa84bc810) out of 5 stars Fun twist to a great game June 16 2015
By Kyle Savage - Published on

Fun twist to a great game. Note that it is an easier expansion, and you will not have to spend much time up in the Kingsport board, but the Rift dynamic is really fun, and the Mythos and Other World cards are some of the better ones. Not to mention the new characters and ancient ones are some of the better ones in the game, even with the other expansions considered.

HASH(0xa84bc618) out of 5 stars Solid Arkham Expansion Jan. 19 2015
By Nicholas Jenkins - Published on
Format: Toy Verified Purchase
In terms of playability, Kingsport is much better than Innsmouth as it actually gives you some bonuses and things to do that help the investigators out. It also doesn't have an endgame trigger the way that the Innsmouth track does.

My Arkham friends and I play with this and Dunwich and not a lot else.

HASH(0xa84bc84c) out of 5 stars Arkham Horror with Moving Portals! Jan. 25 2011
By Chris Ronsicki - Published on
Format: Toy Verified Purchase
After receiving this expansion for the wonderful Arkham Horror base game we decided to go all out and throw every expansion we has onto the playing field. With the maximum investigators so we could have people covering all points, we gave it a shot. Many a player were devoured, and many and old gods broke the seal and destroyed our world, but it was so much fun. The new Kingsport field was aimed at giving the players a bit more survivability, but the damage that could be done from a Rift opening was immense. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth it. If you want your players to survive better, you can just include the playing field additions. Personally, we saw moving portals because of the Rifts opening, and it was a lot of fun having to deal with a portal opening, moving and then another one opening behind it. (Apparently some of the smaller expansion have moving portals as well and we're excited to combine these and attempt to survive.)
HASH(0xa84bcc3c) out of 5 stars A very fun expansion. July 1 2013

This expansion adds aquatic destinations to your board as well as a new town. We had a lot of fun playing with this but just like the other bigger expansions this is something that takes time and effort to learn. Since it's an expansion I would assume you have the actual Arkham Horror game in which case you would know this is not a casual game.
