I combined the upgrade, health, and sanity tokens into the character card with a spinner design:



After a late-night game with lots of whiskey, we decided this game takes TOO LONG to set up and put away. This makes everything easier for us.

Also, I turned the travel tickets into a spinner - no more messing with cumbersome travel tokens:


Here is the link for the .PDFs:

I'll try to add these to the site soon.

All you need are scissors, hole-punchers, eyelets, and an eyelet hammer/pincers.

Awesome idea. I love the game, but the setup time keeps it shelved more than I would like.

Someone at FFG just got fired for missing an opportunity to include dials in this game.

I'm glad they didn't. Dials wear out when you play a game often enough.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Clever. I don't find the game too fiddly as is myself, but I love seeing how people trick out their games.

100s of plays of x-wing, and the dials are all fine.

My set up only takes 5 minutes or so. It is a question of storing the components after you played your last session.

Cards and tokens are all seperated and so it is only the seeding of the Elder Mythos cards that take 2 minutes.

Frankly for a game that lasts around 3 hours a set up of 5-7 minutes is peanuts.

The Vassal mode only needs the Spell, Condition cards and the Mythos cards at hand, which reduces the time even more.

That is actually a great idea. I love this kind of homebrewed stuff I thought setup took forever too, as did clean-up so I went ahead and made the Eldritch Companion app for Android. Check it out, it might help you set things up faster by eliminating all the decks, save the Mythos and Mystery ones.

That's super neat. Left edge is a bit bare though, should've baked the ticket (and a focus one while at it) display into there while you at it instead of making separate wheel - those are never relevantly elsewhere than owned by characters.
Maybe also put a used/ready switch somewhere only for characters with a "once per round" ability.
