Oh baby BABY! This is everything I ever wanted! I love that this game essentially "doubles" the base game: 16 more characters, 8 more Ancient Ones.
Oh yeah, you can't forget the Personal Stories, very possibly the greatest single addition to Arkham Horror from any of the expansions!

The best expansion since Dunwich. The story cards really are a wonderful touch. The board is fun, and the new characters are a blast. Highly recommend it.

Best expansion since Dunwich, in my opinion! I love the personal stories that were added for all the investigators. The new investigators are very interesting (and usually quite powerful), and the new GOOs are extremely difficult. This is really what I've been waiting for in Arkham.

After logging 3 plays, I can say that this is strongest of the AH expansions from my perspective. It adds lots of tension and new things to take care of without bogging down in new rules. Innsmouth is dangerous - quite so - but you HAVE to go there and take care of business or you will lose. Neat thematics throughout the entire expansion, and the new characters and GOOs are fantastic. I am a particular fan of the personal stories, which add another balancing element to the decision making. A+ and then some.

Pain Pain Pain Pain. Well, that's just if you're using an AO from this game. They're beyond ridiculous. Most of the investigators are fun to play as and the personal plots really fill the down time that can happen in larger games.

Looking forward to this badboy. Gonna play with every expansion at once ... just like I always do.

June 2010 - hope to try it out once before Threshold arrives.

Fall 2010 - played with first six expansions. Just too much. Everything is diluted. Going back to playing one expansion at a time for a bit.

Expansion.

Brilliant, this may well get upgraded to a 10 if I still thinks its brilliant after 20 games or so. The new investigators and personal story cards fill out the game marvelously for me.

The innsmouth board and the added threat of deep ones rising adds a lot to the game. On top of that, there is the danger of becoming a deep one yourself. The expansion is great fun and adds difficulty to the game.

I love Innsmouth. The deep ones and the "Innsmouth look" and deep ones rising track, all very cool. Great board and encounters. I love the personal goals for the investigators. Lots of good new investigators and GOO's. Some cool heralds also. The best AH expansion.

This expansion captures the H.P. Lovecraft story "The shadow over Innsmouth" very well: The Innsmouth look cards, the personal missions, the FBI track, the Martial Law, the Deep Ones rising track...all aspects create a fantastic atmosphere. This expansion is a must have for every Arkham Horror fan because of its atmosphere and toughness.

My Favorite board expansion yet.
Even when we have no trouble to keep the deep one track for filling the extra cards that this bring to the game are amazing.
The Investigators are awesome.
The Ancient Ones are real hard, haven't play against all of them yet, but the ones I played I lost.

Overall I really like the Innsmouth expansion. I love the new characters in Innsmouth, they have a lot stronger special abilities than the base game characters, which makes sealing gates a lot easier... This works well if you play with the Innsmouth board expansion and end bosses because they make the game really hard. Which that works great if you've played through the base game and are finding it too easy to beat. If you are still relatively new to the base game, you might want to wait until you have more games in before adding Innsmouth.

Another big plus to Innsmouth are the character story cards. (There are story cards for every Arkham Horror character.)It gives each player a personal goal to accomplish on-top of the bigger goal of sealing the gates. ... and if you're character doesn't succeed in their story card, it could lead to devastating results...

the best board to add to arkham and with lots of new investigators and GOOs. I also love the new plot cards. My only problem with this expansion is that there's no new items otherwise it would be a 10.

The best "big" expansion, imho.

I like the fear that Innsmouth passes to the investigators, knowing that too soon they will need sneak checks to move around town, avoiding the people there. I think the expansion captured pretty well the feeling of the tale by Lovecraft.

The new Investigators and Ancient Ones are all good ones (tough the AO are really tough to beat: I played four times with the expansion and lost all of them, but I don't mindo losing, I'm more put off by easy wins).

Really deserves the 9.5 score.

Our 100th game expansion! So far this expansion is every bit worth the purchase (as I consider all the other expansions to be)! The new characters and Goo's are great! The new board locations and use of the Fed and Deep One track are nice new pressures to add to each incredible game of Arkham Horror! Bring it!

After more plays...I still enjoy this expansion! But, I am having trouble getting the card balance just right! I tried thinning out the Mythos and OW decks to just base Arkham, Innsmouth, and one small expansion like (CDP, KY or LAT). This did not effect the game play...in fact it felt exactly the same! I believe to get the full effect of this expansion, a Herald from this expansion must be in play! Otherwise the deep ones don't seem to come into play enough!

This makes the game so much more challenging and intense! Initially, I even found it to be a bit too challenging. But, as a serious Arkham fan, I'm a major glutton for punishment through added challenge, so this is just the ticket. I especially love the personal stories of each of the investigators.
