So recently I've been getting more and more obsessed with laser cutting. I've been messing with new ways to upgrade game pieces for Arkham Horror and Pandemic. I was thinking of trying to sell premium upgrade pieces for Arkham Horror.

Are there any upgrades you would like to buy for your copy of AH but haven't found? How much would expect to spend on upgraded pieces? Would you be interested in a full upgrade kit that switched all of the bits with premium wood bits and a premium thematically designed storage solution?

Rather than upgrading the components themselves I would personally be interested in products that enhance the components we have. Perhaps cool stands for monsters and gates!

A complete storage solution and ready-to-play thematic wood inserts would be great. It would need to handle all the expansions and allow for just pulling from the box and setting out on the table. Set up and tear down need to be quick. It would need to be in a thematic case, possibly vintage suitcase styling

Daedalus Productions has done some nice things with inserts for Eldritch but it'd be great to do something that replaces all the boxes for Arkham.

Little buildings. That would be crazy, expensive, numerous, a pain to lug around, etc. but I feel like that's all that's missing from our set at this point.

What price would you consider paying for monster stands? There are some really neat litko components, but they are acrylic and my personal taste is to have things made of wood.

If there were small balsa wood houses, would that interest you? They'd be light, but kind of delicate.

Honestly I'd like frames for the Monster tokens. Plastic color coded square frames that would protect the edges of the pieces from fraying in the Monster Cup, the color would indicate movement type.

Just paint the sides of the tokens and put them in plastic coin sleeves for protection.

They will still fit into the Arkham Horror monster stands available on Etsy.

So something like this for Arkham would be awesome:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/255547292/eldritch-horror-box-o...

Some other thoughts for cool little items.

A "coin" style doom/elder sign token, maybe sort of old bronze looking, deeply etched. It would be fine if it was the same size as the current tokens, maybe even preferable. I like the Litko seals, but I almost wish for ones that could be a direct replacement of existing doom/elder sign tokens.

Maybe something similar for the Dunwich Horror tokens, and the Aquatic markers?

By the way, these have recently appeared -- very cool, and will work for both games:
