The King in Yellow rises


Whoops, don't say his name.

The "King in Yellow" has arrived. According to the online store, anyway, the latest expansion for Arkham Horror is hitting the streets as we speak.

According to the prereleased rules, this expansion adds some cool new mechanics, such as heralds (sort of a sidekick for the Ancient One) and blight (a mechanic to add some real teeth to the Terror Track, something that's been needed for a while).

Overall, it looks like a sweet expansion which will add interesting new challenges to the core gameplay. I'll be picking this one up as soon as I see it on the shelves.

I just played a game with the King in Yellow expansion and must admit-it's quite fun. Probably the best part for me are the Blight cards-where the npc personalities on the board are warped by the Mythos and now work against you.

Good times.
