Amazing! The Lost in Space and Time scenarios are my personal favourites. They're really challenging as the Keeper, and hard tasks as an investigator.

The first printing of this expansion has some serious errors in it, but FF sent out replacement components to anyone who bought it. It adds 3 new stories, new characters and new mechanics - fantastic little box.

1 play of the Re-animator story so far, which was very good... a tense game which the investigators won by the skin of their teeth.

Reasons to purchase:

1. Additional combat result cards - these bloat out the existing decks by nearly double. This stops the combat from getting stale, and is one of the better reasons to get this expansion.

2. Four new characters. Featuring a nice mix of new abilities and strengths.

3. Some awesome new map tiles. The conservatory, and a lab complex, spring to mind.

4. Four new monster models. I, for one, and a big fan of the Crawling One's sculpt - they look fantastic painted!

5. The Lost in Time and Space scenario is brilliant, quite brilliant.

It was my life, like all lives, mysterious and irrevocable and sacred. So very close, so very present, so very belonging to me. How wild it was to let it be.

One play so far of the Lost in Time and Space scenario. It was incredibly thematic with the investigators killing a monster, the photographer taking a photo of it (+2 to attacks to that type of monster), and the doctor performing an autopsy (extra Skill tokens). The magician had a robe and mask to move freely among the cultists, and when we used the time machine to go to the future, he was able to walk through walls to access previously inaccessible rooms. The story came down to one investigator in the hidden lab trying to dismantle the time machine while monsters were tearing at her flesh and another investigator was about to be possessed and shoot her with a shotgun. With only 2 health left, she completed the task. It took us four hours to finish, but for a story like that, I thought it was well worth it.

I think the game should be played less as a competitive endeavor and more as an RPG with the Keeper giving the investigators a good game and everybody winning via the story it tells.

Not a bad expansion but could have been better I feel. I prefer the original scenarios for the base game, I think the 3 scenarios was not as well done and I idn't like the sci fi feel they had (I understand that it is still lovecrafts work but I prefer the cults etc.) I felt it could have offered a little more than it did. Not bad but by no means great I feel they missed out on making something a little better.

Once the horrible and game breaking first edition bugs are fixed, Forbidden Alchemy works pretty well as an expansion. The new features are less than dramatic, so it's easy to like or dislike, based on your opinion of the base game.

Misprinting issues aside (I didn't find them as severe as some folks did: the errata sheet is sufficient as a work-around until FFG has the revised cards ready to send out), a lot of good additions to the base game. So far I have only played one scenario (Yellow Matter 1A) and found it to be a worthy addition. Can't wait to try out the other two and variations on all three.

Po przetestowaniu wszystkich 3 przygód – czas na recenzję. Zdecydowane plusy to dodatki, które możemy wykorzystać również w podstawowej wersji gry: nowi poszukiwacze – bardzo silni i ciekawi, dwa zaklęcia, karty walki – dzięki nim talia nabrała imponujących rozmiarów, a różnorodność testów sprzyja strażnikowi tajemnic (już nie tylko celność, siła i zręczność ma znaczenie ), potwory, potwory i jeszcze raz potwory, wreszcie zagadka alchemiczna i talia skutków ubocznych. Minusy: „Żółta materia” wydaje mi się trochę za krótka, jak na przewidywany czas rozgrywki w „Posiadłość”. Pudełko kompletnie nieprzystosowane do przechowywania tak wielu rozbudowanych elementów gry – trzeba się samemu nakombinować co z tym wszystkim zrobić. Scenariusze są skomplikowane, wymagają doświadczenia, w przeciwnym razie mogą stać się przyczyną rozczarowania – zwłaszcza w przypadku „świeżo upieczonych” badaczy. Najlepiej sprawdzają się przy maksymalnej ilości graczy, co może być dla niektórych pewnym utrudnieniem.

This expansion is great. It adds several cool mechanics and comes with some nice new thematic map tiles and some nice new monsters. In general it is very thematic, good fun to play and is well worth getting. I wish it had more stories included as I feel it has more potential.

The stories are good. The gameplay may not do it enough justice for some scenarios. Too bad there's just 3. However, enough added for a relatively small expansion. Love the Crawling Ones and the heroes aren't bad either.

Really not the lame duck that many claim. The re-animator scenario is a bit underwhelming, but still on par with the scenarios found in the base game. While the "Yellow Matter scenario is one of my favorites, even compared with the ones found in Call of the Wild. "Lost in Time and Space" has an interesting idea behind it, but admittedly isn't executed as well as it could have been. However considering the excellence of the combat cards, the new investigators, and the new monsters I think that the new content justifies the purchase price. It's no "Call of the Wild" but it does add some interesting new content for those who have played all the base scenarios a dozen or more times.

The new monsters are nothing too exciting, but the there is plenty in this expansion to make it worth buying. New investigators, spells, puzzles, items, tiles make it interesting, as well as errata cards for the base game.
