I'm working on constructing a box insert out of foamcore. It's going to have compartments for the cards from the various expansions, and instead of labeling the compartments with the names, I thought I would use the expansion images. However, the only place I've found such images is the Arkham Horror Wiki, and those don't blow up very well.

Anyone know where I can find higher-resolution images?

Thanks!

The PDFs of the rules have decent sized images. I assume you mean the expansion symbols?

Also, if you've got the know-how, you could always use Adobe Illustrator to turn them into vectors to blow them up as big as you want.

Yes, indeed.

Hmm. I don't know anything about that. Maybe I'll investigate.

Thanks!

I have them at reasonable size on one sheet in .png format with the corresponding expansion names next to them. I'd love to post it because I find it to be a useful reference when trying to remember which box the cards come from and I think others might as well. However, I never understand whether it's ok to post something like this with the expansion icon images here or not. I'm not looking to do the wrong thing. Anyone have any advice on how/whether to post something like this?

As I understand it, if it's simply a reference sheet as you describe, it should be OK.

However, if you elect not to post it, could you email me a copy directly?

Thanks!

I sent a copy to Pete and it was what he needed. I sent an email to FFG customer service asking permission to post it. If they say yes, I'll put it in the files section. If no, then I won't. I figure that's the safest way to go.

This might help for future requirements, get the Arkham Horror "Vassel" modules (http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Arkham_Horror), open the "vmdx" file for the expansion you are interested in with WinZip, WinRar etc., there is an "images" folder that contains all the cards, board, tokens, Investigators etc. Just extract the one you want and you are away (note cards for "common items" have no text which is an FFG stipulation).

Regards
