Hi guys,

I bought MoM a few months ago, but just got around to playing it on the weekend. I loved it, great game.....so much so that i went ahead and ordered all the other expansions for it.

i just have one query, when i get said expansions can i just mix them in with the core game? or do i need to keep them separate from each other, only adding them when i wish to play one expansion?

thanks in advance.

I'd say you could mix the core and expansion games together. Because MoM requires particular mansion (board) layouts, expansion pieces shouldn't ever mess up the board for a scenario from the core game.

It is very CONVENIENT, though not necessary, to keep the expansions separated from the other cards. Makes setup much easier.

Each expansion contains all the necessary cards to run it, including new copies of the cards in the core set. I keep mine separated in zip=lock bags, and am happy with that system.

You can certainly mix Forbidden Alchemy and the base MoM game components together. I currently store all the game tiles in the FA box (except the large lobby tile) as well as the investigator minis and the print on demand expansions. For each of the print on demand expansions I just put the cards into a small bag and labeled the bag.

If you get some large Plano boxes you can fit 2 of them into the MoM base game box and have all the components nicely organized.

Drakkenstrike (we miss him terribly) made a video for storing the components that could help you out too.

Don't mix in the PRINT ON DEMAND packages, they are a different card stock and printing density, and are also stand alone.

There is no reason to mix those cards in.

So, I mixed the PODs in, and yes they do have a slightly different colored back, but as long as the keeper is picking a random sedative or random silver key, it's not too bad. The reason I did this is that I sleeve over duplicates of cards so that I also have 4 fan scenarios ready to play plus the scenario I'm in the process of writing ready for play testing.

But otherwise, you're better of not mixing in the PODs.

I was just wondering about Drakkenstrike today: what happened to him?
I miss his great component breakdowns!
