Given the visual design of the sanity tokens, they seem more like INsanity tokens.

With that in mind, we've been adding them (rather than taking them away) from the cards of the afflicted investigators. Used in this way, each one serves as another disorienting blow to the fragile psyche of the investigator in question, driving him or her ever closer to the ravening maelstrom of madness.

In short: when an investigator accrues four insanity tokens, he or she goes insane.

That's a cool idea! I like it.

Excellent approach. I'm surprised this isn't the official procedure.

I agree, I do wish the cards used this instead, but I think it's just a few great old ones that refer to the sanity tokens.
