I play a lot solo and my base-game monster tokens have become badly worn from rubbing together. To protect the expansion tokens from the same damage, I bought a couple of bags of 3x2 plastic seal-lock bags from a craft and hobby store and put them all in those. It's too late for the originals, although, I put those in bags, too, but the expansion monsters will all stay fresh and new.

From constant handling, the gate trophies were getting stained from hand oils, so I did the same with them. The bags are a little long and will fold over somewhat in the monster bag, but the can be folded back and isn't a problem.

With all the extra bulk, I grabbed a travel-sized pillow case out of the drawer for my new monster cup. It's a little big, but playing solo, I have plenty of room off to the side.

I only use one expansion at a time, so the individual expansion monsters I've put in a larger seal-lock bag when not in use.

I wonder if it would be possible to laminate/shrinkwrap the individual tokens?

I looked into lamination, but they're too thick. It would create bubbles. Lamination is for thin paper stock. It works great for the investigators and AO's. Shrink wrap would probably tear in the mixing.

My lived-in look is so bad I can barely tell a byakee from a Nightgaunt.
Whenever I pull the Dhole, I really don't recognize it until I get it close up.

I touch the edges up with marker (well, the red and black bordered ones anyway) They're still all chewed up :-( but it hides the little white nicks and dings in the edges...

They get chewed up by the plastic stands; they also get destroyed in the Monster Bag (I use a cloth bag instead of a cup)

Download my Monster Sheet in the files section here on BGG.
It really does save on the wear and tear of your monster chits and that is the reason I made it.
