Hi,

Thought I'd share my new obsession - making or repurposing items into custom chaos tokens or "bags". I'm playing the game frequently love to really shake up the tokens in a custom wooden container that feels more thematic than a bag. I became frustrated at the cardboard chaos tokens showing wear quickly so decided to make my own. Here's some examples of the wooden tokens and chaos containers.

(And no, I don't try to pick the good tokens by trying to read them with my fingertips. . Not easy to do and pretty obvious bad behavior that might call down the disfavor of the Old Ones.

Minis from Mansions of Madness = much better for moving characters around than cards imho, and love Othello tokens (half white and half black) for action tokens for the investigators.

@Soylent: Why yes I am! FFG in Roseville is only 3-4 miles from my place. It's the home of our weekly game nights. Very lucky!

Very nice! My parents are in the East metro - I am down for a visit and will be in tomorrow night likely.

If you happen to be in - I'll say hi!

I will know you by your components! LOL!

Sigh, they need to get the full investigator set back in stock. I hate buying things piecemeal and now I need 2 sets for this and Eldritch. T_T.
