I recently got the core box and, while loving the game, I was a bit disappointed by the 'tokens in a bowl' approach to the chaos bag. I went looking for a nice thematic bag replacement and found that tarot bags were a great thematic option - thought others might find this useful.

This is the one I got, which I think is particularly well-fitting:

I went with something slightly leftfield .. which also comes with something beneficial !

http://www.packagingoftheworld.com/2016/11/bulleit-bourbon-f...


It's a great shape and size, stands upright, and has a magnetic clasp inside the top seam. Can just imagine Roland helping himself to a few glasses of this stuff mid investigation ..


(Picked up from my local supermarket's drinks aisle).

I go for the DIY approach - black thinsulate hat from the pound shop and a black shoe lace (from a set of about 20 pairs of shoelaces at the pound shop).

The 'rim'/'hem' of the hat is double thickness and it's easy to push the end of the laces through so that it's enclosed within the 'hem', and feed it around the hat and push it back out near the start.

Hey presto - a black bag with drawstring that's the perfect size for Arkham Horror/Eldritch Horror monster cup/bag or AH:LCG tokens - and all for marginally over £1.

I made one to test last year and have since made about 10 for under £11 in total - so I keep one in each game box for games that need draw bags.

I'm actually ridiculously proud of such a cost-effective and practical solution.

EDIT: typo - I meant 'hat' not 'at'

Everyone in my play group all bought this:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/470833932/elder-sign-star-embro...

The vendor also has this:

The vendor was great and the bag high-quality. I strongly recommend it. Big plus over some other bags is that it sits upright well on a flat/level surface.
