I've been having so much fun playing the game, currently deep in the Dunwich campaign. But the characters cards are unwieldy to use on their own and takes up too much space on the table. I've seen solutions to this discussed in other threads, eg putting the cards in stands, using tokens, meeples.

It just occurred to me today that lego people are great alternatives to the character cards. We tried it out and it makes the game easier but still personable. Below is a pic of our two figures for our characters Daisy and Skids (as close as we could get with the figures I have):

Already doing this when I don't have bases to put minicards in. If you buy minifig boosters you also get a base for them

OR use the minis from Mansions of Madness and have a correct representation of your characters that might not be so dispruptive to your imagination as LEGO
