So, this game takes up a lot of space, we all know that...but the small cards are the worst part. I love this game, its in my top 10, but the small cards are such a pain to keep together and look through every time I play.

How do you guys deal with this?

Separate the small decks by category. Conditions and unique items can be split into 4 or so decks easily. Then use a business card holder or small vertical organizer to keep them neat and not take uo too much space.

I use a fan made app for the encounters so my tablespace is basically just the board and investigator mats now.

I used a cutter and made some trays out of the cardboard from a small box expansion, it looks now like this:



Setup time is like 1/4 than it was before

I use the e-raptor card holders, one S and one L sized. In my box, the cards are sorted with dividers and when I set up, I just put them into the compartments. Reduces set up time and now I'm also able to play with two sideboards meeple

Look here: e-Raptor Card Holders 18L and 18S - now you can play Arkham Horror on a camping table

Three or four (if you sleeved your cards) of these work great!

I also use the Eldritch Companion Android app instead of the encounter cards.
