I'm curious to know if anyone has suggestions for some thematic tokens or coins that could be used to denote player actions. 3-4 of these would be needed thanks to Skid's Leo de Luca extra turn. I'd like something like a 2-sided coin with alternating sides to denote if I have used it or not.

For some reason my google-fu is weak at the moment and nothing of interest is popping up Save me, BGG!

Ah yes, well I was hoping to find something that might be out now too. Surely elder signs, or cthulhu themed bits here and there.

Not to mention, the legacy of Arkham Horror throughout the years.

Haven't opened my box yet, but dapperdevil.com have a cthulhu and a pentagram acrylic token. Also fantasycoin.com have really nice metal cthulhu coins.

I've just been using Clue/Doom tokens. They are double-sided, theamatic and handy. Plus they have that whole "red, stop; green, go" mnemonic thing going.

I was planning to get some Imperial Assault activation tokens in acryl.

They look fairly generic, so they won't look out of place.

Bye

Great ideas guys, I'll have to check out some of those coins as well.

Someone made a good suggestion on a Facebook posting about Othello/Reversi pieces. They are double sided with white on one side and black on the other.

The suggestion about using clues/doom was a good one. I actually did just that very thing during the game. I think this is just a more aesthetic thing for me so just looking to upgrade the game a little more

Wooden cubes ! Wooden cubes EVERYWHERE !

To be honest, I love handling cubes, and I hate picking up flat tokens.

Made me some custom tokens:


Printed on label sheets and mounted on 2mm cardboard.
Just rotate 90 degrees clockwise for each action.
Works quite well and is much easier to pick up than the mini-cards.

Really my main desire so far are for those nifty FFG spin dials to keep track of resources. That way you just need a handful for items. Someone in my group was using excess clue counters and flipping them to the mythos side when exhausted. I'm sure there's some sort of double sided component from other games you could use. I've used the hearts & tentacles CMON made for The Others, 7 sins for EH and they can work for AH as well.

Yeah, I have some Othello black/white two sided tokens I can use in place for now. Just flip sides to denote I took the action.

Very nice Kengi. I've seen those around. They also had some nice Cthulhu high quality single coins... but I can only find on eBay for 20$ a pop :x

And I recognize you from the Mythos discord. Hope all those bags sold awesomely!
