Hi there,

I have the base game plus Forsaken Lore and Signs of Carcosa.

Every time I play with both expansions, I spend ages afterwards putting all the cards back into their respective boxes.

Am I being crazy? Should I just put everything together and leave it together?

The OCD part of me wants to keep everything separate and in it's own box, but is there any point in this?

what do you do? Do you just have everything together or do you separate cards etc after each game?

Aaaaargh! Advice please!!!!

Is there any reason you can think of that you will play EH without those expansion cards? I think they can stay mixed in. Unless you think you'll ever go back to base only EH? This will answer your question.

MY problem is that I can't make myself throw away the little boxes. My expansion cards are mixed in - but I still have small empty boxes on the shelf!

Soon I will be where you are, currently I only have the base game and Forsaken Lore, and I am already preparing to make tuck boxes to combine the two but at the end of each game (more likely later that night when every one is gone or next day, lol) I will separate them and then put them back into the boxes.

I actually have done this for Elder Sign & Unseen Forces.

So, answers to your questions, in order:

Yes. Yes.

No.

I mixed everything together. I own also Mountains of Madness and Under the Pyramid (not yet Signs of Carcosa, I'm picking it up this week), which means I can't fit everything in one box. So I put everything that is used in all games inside the Eldritch Horror box and all the Investigators, AOs, Preludes, extra boards, extra clues + gates + special cards related to certain AOs/preludes, Mythos cards, etc... into the Pyramids box. I threw away all the other boxes except for Forgotten Lores, in which I'm housing the Investigator standees, but which is inside the Pyramids box (it's just for organizing).

I just keep everything together because I play with pretty much everything every game.

Wait... How do you already have Signs of Carcosa when it's not released yet? Sorry, it's just that your question doesn't sound like one a beta tester would have asked. A bit jealous!

When was this released? FFG said 3rd quarter, whatever that means, I didn't think it meant June. I subscribe to the EH threads, check Amazon regularly, and never saw it coming. They really need to do a better job of giving actual release dates ahead of time. Just checked, and it's still not available on Amazon, which when you live in the country, is your FLGS.

The "Upcoming" section of the FFG website is your best friend in this regard.
